PPP in Defence Manufacturing

The Defence Ministry is considering proposal to bring four arms manufacturing units of OFB, under the Public-Private-Participation (PPP) model, with an aim to increase private participation in the defencesector. The four units identified for the PPP model are Small Arms Factory (SAF) in Kanpur, Ordnance Factory Tiruchirappalli (OFT), Rifle Factory Ishapore (RFI) in Bengal and Ordnance Factory Korwa in UP. Till now no private player had been identified. The government has so far declared 143 items "non-core" and asked ordnance factories to focus on core items.
