DRDO has key role in Make in India: Nirmala

 Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has a great role in realising the 'Make in India' vision of  Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

She was speaking on Saturday at a programme organised for 'Transfer of the DRDO Developed Technologies to Industry' at the Naval Science and Technology Laboratory (NSTL) here.

The NSTL is a premier naval systems lab of the DRDO in the port city.

Nirmala complimented DRDO scientists for the outstanding work in realising critical defence systems.

"The DRDO has a great role to play in realising the 'Make in India' vision of the prime minister," she said.

The minister said she was confident that the DRDO will rise to the challenge and transform India into a major exporter of defence systems, according to a release issued by the NSTL.

Nirmala was the chief guest at the programme.

'Make in India' is a flagship initiative of the NDA government to develop the position of the country as a manufacturing hub.
