India’s ambitious Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) program is taking a significant step forward with the formation of a public-private sector consortium for its manufacturing. This innovative approach signifies a new chapter in Indian defense production.

The Ministry of Defence has already issued an Expression of Interest (EoI) to gauge industry interest, receiving a positive response with three proposals. The AMCA program will be executed through a special purpose vehicle (SPV) model, integrating private players into the process. This public-private partnership marks a first for India, with the private sector holding a majority stake in the SPV. This consortium will be responsible for assembling and maintaining the AMCA jet once it enters production, expected around 2032-2033.

The announcement of the companies participating in the SPV is anticipated within the next six months. The public-private partnership model holds the potential to leverage the strengths of both sectors. Private sector expertise can streamline production and potentially enhance efficiency, while government involvement ensures strategic oversight and national security considerations are prioritized.

The AMCA program is a significant undertaking for India, aiming to develop a next-generation fighter jet. This public-private partnership approach, if successful, could be a game-changer for Indian defense production. It could pave the way for increased private sector participation in future projects, fostering innovation and potentially accelerating India’s journey towards self-reliance in defense technology.

The coming months will be crucial as the composition of the SPV is revealed. The success of this partnership will depend on clear communication, defined roles, and a shared vision for achieving India’s strategic goals.
