Lot of lip service is being done regarding Make in India program: IAF chief

IndiaTimes Monday, 16 December 2019
During an event, the Indian Air Force (IAF) chief said, "Everyone has to work in this direction (of indigenous development). We have given our support. DRDO has to design a timeline... PSUs should be encouraged for private sector participation." "Right now, in this 'Make in India' and indigenisation (program), a lot of lip service is being done. Our intentions are very good but practically, the work is going on extremely slowly. If everyone works in this direction, we will be successful," he added.
