A firm which has expertise in metalwork- stamping, machining, with necessary tooling, would probably be able to pull it off.

Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 11 June 2014

K Mehtaji, it is the job of the Ministry of Defence, specifically the Department of Defence Production to ensure that the work is done correctly. However, as I have said, rampant trade unionism has made a hash of everything. The fact is, that OFB is not even a Defence PSU. It is a direct government ...

All journos are by and large individually or organisationally lifafa. But the fact is, that the rifles reaching the troops are of poor quality.

Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 11 June 2014

Dunno about the Indian Army, but chaps I know in the field say that the weapons, particularly the INSAS LMG are totally unreliable, occasionally leading to disaster in life and death situations.

SFF was never a part of the Indian Army, and had been raised by the Intelligence Bureau, under BN Mullick. The first IG SFF was a Lt.Col. Uban (initially DIG). I happen to know a bit about the history of the organisation. The org does work closely with the military, and the IG SFF is an army officer...

VK Singh is a strange mix of competence, honesty, ambition, and naivete. Obviously a very competent and driven man, or he would never have achieved so much in life. But he shouldnt get sidetracked by things. Ramana is quite correct, it is for the Ministry of DONER to look after the north east, and t...

I dont think so. It would be too much of a blow to the system. VK himself said that the BJP goct may still have appointed him. Still, Suhag may find that he is having a tough time- Noone expected the first strong government in thirty years, with an absolute majority. So Ideally he should have been a...
