Official Top 20 'Buyorities' for Indian Armed Forces
By SP's Special Correspondent

June 09, 2014: Over the last 10 days, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley has been busy receiving a flurry of briefings from the Indian armed forces chiefs as well as senior leadership on the various priorities for each force, and the guidance they require from the new man in the hot seat. Priorities have ranged from modernisation, administrative, operational, planning and human resources. At each meeting, Jaitley is understood to have assured his briefers that their presentations would be the touchstone for how the MoD would conduct affairs, a heartening touch for the anxious military. Through conversations with top officers at the armed forces and MoD, SP's has compiled an official list of the Top 20 military weapons modernisation priorities for the armed forces -- five each of the Army, IAF, Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. It is on this definitive priority list that the MoD is expected to show movement.
