Re: India's R&D in Defence DRDO, PSUs and Private Sector

But the big question is of Market. To prime the pump, GOI needs to provide the initial volume for a few years. Reliance can then foray in the global supply chain from there. Future prospects are good on paper. They would hold a monopoly on Indian market for time to come as entry barrier to this bus...

Re: India's R&D in Defence DRDO, PSUs and Private Sector

I haven't ever heard of Kemrock producing Carbon fibre in large quantities. At least no composite manufacturer I know uses them. Also to be noted that BPJs would probably need high grade phenolic resins, which are not made in India either. What is meant by Midhani making BPJ is probably that they ta...

I am from IIST TVM

Hardly anyone pays attention to Umanities/Social science people. Lectures/seminars like that may be once in a year at most.
I would not read too much into it. Faculties are not at all from JNU ( except maybe Umanities type ).
