Defence Ministry announces import embargo on 101 items: Full List 

The Defence Ministry on Sunday introduced import embargo on at least 101 items to boost the indigenization of defense production. The major announcement was made by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. The list of 101 embargoed items comprises of not just simple parts but also some high technology weapon systems like artillery guns, assault rifles, corvettes, sonar systems, transport aircraft,  LCHs, radars and many other items to fulfil the needs of our Defence Services, the minister said.

Singh said the decision will offer a great opportunity to the Indian defence industry to manufacture the items in the negative list by using their own design and development capabilities or adopting the technologies designed and developed by DRDO to meet the requirements of the Armed Forces.

He said the embargo on imports is planned to be progressively implemented between 2020 to 2024. "Our aim is to apprise the Indian defence industry about the anticipated requirements of the Armed Forces so that they are better prepared to realise the goal of indigenisation," he said in a series of tweets.

The minister recalled Prime Minister Narendra Modi's clarion call for a self-reliant India or "Atmanirbhar Bharat" and said the decision was based on that evocation. He said the list has been prepared by the ministry after several rounds on consultations with all stakeholders, including the Armed Forces, public and private industry to assess current and future capabilities of the Indian industry for manufacturing various ammunition and equipment within India.

The defence minister said more such equipment for import embargo would be identified progressively by the Department of Military Affairs (DMA) in consultation with all stakeholders. A due note of this will also be made in the DAP to ensure that no item in the negative list is processed for import in the future.

"Almost 260 schemes of such items were contracted by the Tri-Services at an approximate cost of Rs 3.5 lakh crore between April 2015 and August 2020," Singh said. It is estimated that contracts worth almost Rs 4 lakh crore will be placed upon the domestic industry within the next 6 to 7 years, he added. Of these, items worth almost Rs 1,30,000 crore each are anticipated for the Army and the Air Force while items worth almost Rs 1,40,000 crore are anticipated by the Navy over the same period.
