Offset JVs with MSMEs

Reaching Indian MSMEs for Offset Projects could be a tedious process. Whom should we Partner with, and for which Products / Services? This needs to be a transparent, totally professional and ethical approach, especially during due diligence of the 'to-be-partner' company. It needs to be one2one between Foreign OEM and the Indian MSMEs. Govt. should only intervene if the would-be company is blacklisted, or unethical.


We List credible MSMEs on this e-Marketplace.

Defence Offsets Guidelines, India

India is one of the biggest importers of defence equipment. India has laid down '30% Defence Offset Policy' to support development in the Indian Defence Industry and it's allied set-ups. It is estimated that over INR 83,000 Crore are likely to flow back into India during the next 10 years through offsets in defence deals.  www.DefenceOffsetsIndia.com refers.

Ministry of Defence (MOD), Govt. of India, has set-up Defence Offsets Management Wing (DOMW)  which is responsible for formulation of Defence Offsets Guidelines and all matters relating to post-contract management.

These changes will apply to the relevant provision of earlier versions of DPP as well.

The change is applicable with immediate effect for RFPs issued on or after the date of issue of this amendment. 

Guidelines for Forming JVs with DPSUs

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) have issued the Defence Production Policy with an objective to achieve substantive self-reliance in defence production. The Defence Production Policy states that in order to synergize and enhance the national competence in producing state-of-the-art defence products within the pricelines and timelines that are globally competitive, all viable approaches such as formation of consortia, joint ventures (JVs) and public private partnership etc. within the Government approved framework will be undertaken.

Defence Procurement Policy 2013 (DPP 2013)

DPP 2013 has been released. It will be effective from 01 Jun 2013. DPP-2013, has the twin objectives of “infusing greater efficiency in the procurement process and strengthening the defence manufacturing base in the country”.

DPP-2013 backs indigenous defence industry. Indian defence companies will get access to the military’s long-term equipment road map ; will be provided a level playing field between the defence public sector undertakings (DPSUs) and the private defence companies; simplification of the ‘Buy & Make (Indian)’,and defines certain terms the DPP.


Brief Report: DEFEXPO 2014 Seminar on Indigenisation

FICCI along with the Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence organized a one and half day seminar on “Defence Procurement: Global Partnerships towards Joint Development and Indigenisation” during Defexpo 2014 on Feb 6 -7, 2014. The seminar was inaugurated by Mr GC Pati, Secretary, Defence Production in presence of senior officials from the Ministry of Defence, Indian Army, Indian Air Force, Indian Navy and the industry.

Estimating India's Self-Reliance

This paper of the IDSA attempts to estimate the self-reliance index of India’s defence production. While estimating the index, it also focuses on three important issues; the approach towards self-reliance (as understood in the Indian context), data problems in estimating the index and the methodology used to arrive at the index. The paper suggests that a separate budgetary classification be made in the Defence Services Estimates to facilitate computation of self-reliance in a more objective manner. This necessitates suitable changes in the classification handbook for defence that mandates the concerned officials of the Indian Defence Accounts Department to book a particular expenditure. This is only a Report of the Seminar.

e-SP2 Concept

e-Selling & e-Procurement Service Provider(s) (e-SP2) is an Innovative Idea.

In this concept, e-Selling, and e-Sourcing/e-Procurement is outsourced by Industry/Companies to experts outside their organisations in line with their Strategy. The goal of the Industry is to retain the existing 'edge' definitely, but still fine-tune 'input costs' with a view not to get 'edged-out' in the emerging environment of globalisation and liberalisation. This helps in making Selling and Buying Processes highly competitive.
