Union Minister G Kishan Reddy on 10th june, 2020, Wednesday said the NDA government will focus on domestic manufacturing of arms, ammunition and other security products to promote 'Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan'.

"Now the Government of India has decided to soon initiate procurement from local industries to reduce import dependence," he said.

Reddy, the Union Minister of State for Home, said for many years India was dependent on worldwide Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) for procuring arms and ammunition.

"We will have to strengthen our presence in making a strong public-private-partnership culture," he said.

The minister highlighted the government was also in the process of upgrading various testing centres and laboratories in the country. He said the government will also use GeM (Government-e-Marketplace) portal to promote domestic products.
