The embargo on imports is planned to be progressively implemented between 2020 and 2024

Union Minister Rajnath Singh, on Sunday, announced restrictions on import of 101 weapons and military platforms to promote the domestic defence industry.

Singh tweeted, "The Ministry of Defence is now ready for a big push to Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative. MoD will introduce import embargo on 101 items beyond a given timeline to boost indigenisation of defence production".

He added that 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.

According to Singh, the list of 101 items which will face embargo on their imports has been prepared by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) after several rounds of consultations with all stakeholders, including the armed forces, public and private industry.

Singh has estimated that the domestic defence industry will receive contracts worth around Rs four lakh crore within the next six to seven years post the decision.
