Antony directs Army to streamline acquisitions to check slippages

New Delhi, Mon, 02 Apr 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Apr 2 (ANI): Defence Minister A.K. Antony today reviewed various issues and proposals relating to acquisition for the Indian Army, and asked them to streamline procedures to prevent slippages in the future.

The meeting was attended among others by Chief of Army Staff General V.K. Singh, Defence Secretary Shashi Kant Sharma, DG Acquisition Vivek Rae and the top brass of Indian Army.

During the meeting Antony directed the Army to streamline its acquisition process in such a manner so that accountability can be fixed in case of any slippages.

He also asked the officials of the Ministry of Defence and the Army to examine the possibility of compressing the time taken for technical evaluations and trials.

Antony favoured delegation of more financial powers to Service headquarters if it can lead to speedier acquisition of equipment, platforms and systems for the Services.

Another meeting will be held next month to review the progress made on the decisions taken today. (ANI)
