Defence Ministry to buy bulletproof jackets from two companies

The decision to choose Indian contenders to manufacture these jackets is being seen as a great push to the government’s Make In India initiative.

The Defence ministry has decided that Tata Advanced Materials and MKU, the two Indian contenders shortlisted for supplying 50,000 bulletproof jackets, will supply 25,000 such jackets each. The decision is aimed at faster procurement of these jackets for jawans.
