Enhancing the fire power of Infantry units
RAJYA SABHA

Modernisation of Infantry has been accorded the highest priority in the current Army Plan. The Army Infantry units on borders have been equipped with modern and effective fire power systems like 84 mm Rocket Launcher MK-III; Automatic Grenade Launcher AGS-30; Multi Grenade Launcher (MGL); Anti Material Rifle (AMR) and Flame Thrower RPO-A (FT). The reconnaissance and surveillance equipment include state of the art, equipment like Hand Held Thermal Imagers, Battle Field Surveillance Radar (Short Range) i.e. BFSR (SR); High Resolution Binoculars and Unattended Ground Sensors. All these items have been imported from various foreign countries like Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Israel, France, Germany and USA. The equipment is procured only after observing the prescribed acquisition procedure.

Wherever required, and possible transfer of technology is also taken to manufacture such equipment in India. The Transfer of Technology (ToT) has been taken for Hand Held Thermal Imagers and these are now being manufactured indigenously by M/s Bharat Electronics Ltd. The ToT for Unattended Ground Sensors has been taken by M/s Nelco, a Tata Company, without any expenditure by Government of India. Battle Field Surveillance radar (SR) was earlier imported from Israel but now has been developed by DRDO and Technology has been passed on to M/s Bharat Electronics Ltd. In such case, there is varying degrees of indigenisation achieved.

In all the cases of procurements for Infantry, deficiencies are being made up and older generation weapons and equipment are being replaced by modern weapons and equipment.

Technology for Armaments like 84 mm Rocket Launcher, Automatic Grenade Launcher, Multi Grenade Launcher, Anti Material Rifle and High Resolution Binocular is also proposed to be taken from the original manufacturers from whom Arms, Ammunition and equipment have been procured after trials evaluations and found acceptable by the Armed Forces.

This information was given by the Defence Minister Shri George Fernandes in a written reply to Shri Nandi Yellaiah in Rajya Sabha today.
