| | | Share |

Let us trail back to 1950s, when the then Prime Minister of India made announcements for industrialisation in all the sectors. The avowed intention was a rapid growth of the country. As with every other sector in the interactions and spinoffs that they entail, Defence too plays an integral role in the industrialisation and growth of a nation state.
