About the Book

Disarmament in Europe led to economy in defence outlays. Has it made India a safer place to live in, can we cut down our defence costs, if not why not? India has been ranked as a top manufacturer of armaments in the Third World. Our first Ordnance Factory was set up nearly two centuries ago. We now have forty departmently run factories. In addition we have eight Public Sector units. The defence Ministry claims several breakthroughs every year. We are the top importer of conventional weapons in the whole world.
