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

3K crore is not small amount and with such a wide variety of application may be MoD, Meity and Department of Space can share the amount.
Also,IISc can also try to look for funds from private enterprise, if it is allowed and our private sector is aware and have some guts to take some risk.
