40k is the total requirement. So only 24k will be left after this order. But maybe if they are building it in India other forces like BSF, CRPF and ITBP can be convinced to procure some too.

ECWCS samples were developed in 2017 in collaboration with IIT Delhi and submitted to Army for trials along with Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP). In December 2018, samples were shown to the Master General of Ordnance (MGO) and permission for trials was sought. MGO directed to submit samples against future Request for Information (RFI). Till date, no RFIs were floated


An RFP for 50000 ECWCS was floated by MGO in June 2020 for past suppliers and user-approved vendors, leaving no options for OFB to participate. We are, however, ready with our samples with modifications suggested by the user (Army) who will carry out field trials. Additionally, samples of OEF items such as boot crampon, rucksack 70 ltr light-weight and sleeping bags are under evaluation
