Earlier this year In a significant move towards realizing the ‘Make-in-India’ initiative in the defence sector, the Ministry of Defence received a proposal from the Indian Army to acquire 307 Advanced Towed Artillery Gun Systems (ATAGS). These advanced artillery systems are intended for deployment along the borders with China and Pakistan.
The proposal, valued at over USD 1 billion, is currently under discussion and is expected to gain swift approval, subsequently advancing to the Cabinet Committee on Security for clearance.
Bharat Forge Chairman and Managing Director, Baba Kalyani, has also confirmed that the company anticipates securing orders for the ATAGS by the end of the current financial year, with the production split between Bharat Forge and Tata Advanced Systems Limited.
