From Pinaka to Astra, DAC approves military equipment worth Rs 38,900 crore to boost combat capability

In a bid to boost the combat capability of the armed forces, India on Thursday approved procurement of 33 frontline fighter jets, a number of missile systems and other military hardware at a cost of Rs 38,900 crore. The nod comes amid India’s tense border standoff with China. The decisions on procurement of the fighter jets, missile systems and other military equipment were taken at a meeting of the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) chaired by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday. The DAC is the highest decision-making body of the defence ministry on procurement.
