The Indian Army has made significant strides towards self-sufficiency in ammunition production. In a major push towards indigenization, the Army has identified local sources for nearly 150 out of the 175 types of ammunition it utilizes. This initiative aims to eliminate ammunition imports by the financial year 2025-26.

This development marks a significant shift for the Indian Army, which has traditionally relied on imports to meet a portion of its ammunition needs. The corporatization of Ordnance Factories and the entry of several private sector players in recent years have significantly bolstered domestic production capabilities.

The establishment of new ammunition plants across the country is further accelerating the indigenization drive. This increased capacity not only ensures the Army’s self-sufficiency but also paves the way for India to become a major exporter of ammunition in the international market.

The shift towards domestic ammunition production offers several advantages beyond import substitution. It fosters greater control over the supply chain, reduces dependence on foreign vendors, and strengthens India’s strategic autonomy. Additionally, a robust domestic ammunition industry can create jobs and contribute to the country’s economic growth.

With the deadline of 2025-26 approaching, the Indian Army’s commitment to achieving self-reliance in ammunition production is a positive development. This initiative not only ensures the Army’s operational preparedness but also positions India as a potential leader in the global ammunition market.
