NEW DELHI (PTI): Vice Chief of the Army Lt Gen Philip Campose on Thursday said there was a need for greater penetration by the private industry to meet the growing requirements of the force.

With enhanced involvement of private industry, the Army today needs indigenised, cost-effective and innovative solutions to modernise its equipment and technology, he said.

Campose was addressing a two-day international seminar on 'Modernisation Vision & Plan of Indian Army, Indian Industry Preparedness and Future Commitments' organised by FICCI in association with the Indian Army.

He said that the 'Make in India' campaign launched by the government of India has found great enthusiasm with the Indian Army.

The highly complex, technologically advanced and lethal battlefield of today needs India to be well-equipped and operationally prepared, he said.

Campose added that there was need for a synergised approach by all stakeholders to ensure success of the 'Make in India' campaign.

He said that Indian soldiers were among the best in the world and it was important to provide them with modern technology and weapons to combat the enemy and boost their morale.

He added that Army's response to emergencies has been swift, synergised and professional and to continue to do so it needed a high-level of preparedness, which would come with reliable ammunitions and indigenised technology.
