MDL is committed to indigenise equipment and systems on our warships& submarines, in pursuance of the Government’s “AtmaNirbhar Bharat” and “Make in India” campaigns.
We intend to increase the quantum of indigenised components on our warships and submarines in order to give an impetus to the Government of India’s “AtmaNirbhar Bharat” and “Make in India” campaigns. In the past, we used to import engineering and weapon equipment and systems for warships & submarines built in India.Importing such equipment and systems resulted in increased costs and dependence on foreign OEMs.
In order to address these issues, a dedicated department of indigenisation was set up at MDL in November 2015 and a “Make in India” page placed on our website. This is being augmented and expanded to support the “AtmaNirbhar Bharat” initiative of Government of India.
MDL supports AtmaNirbhar Bharat initiatives through following avenues:
MAKE IN INDIA
Arranging to manufacture imported equipment & systems in India, in collaboration with foreign OEMs & Indian Industry for use onboardIndian ships &submarines, and for export.
Supporting the Indian Navy& Coast Guard in their indigenisation effort by identifying Indian OEMs and guiding them to develop and manufacture items to replace imported products.
Identifying products and guiding Development Agencies without funding for prototype development, but with assurance of orders on successful development and trials of prototype.
