Welcome to Directorate of Indigenisation Website
The Indian Army holds a sizeable number of equipments of import origin. Limited quantity of spares is procured along with the equipment. By the time the equipment is exploited in the field, spare support from the OEM dwindles, as production lines generally closed or are diverted to other products, due to the rapid change and advancement in the field of technology. The situation deteriorates when the equipment warrants overhaul and the spares availability is minimal. The performance of the equipment gradually degrades with time, due to non replacement of unreliable spares/accessories. The support to such equipment at this stage gets confined to the indigenous efforts only. Thus Directorate of Indigenisation has been established under MGOs Branch/DGEME to undertake indigenisation activities.
