Testing & R&D Facilities for Light Weight Body Armours

On the  recommendation of  Niti Aayog, Govt intends to boost domestic manufacturing of lightweight body armours, by promoting indigenous manufacturing including raw materials, creating more testing facilities, adopting Indian standards, setting up Centre of Excellence to pursue R&D in Nano technology material and simplification on procurement process.. The bullet-proof vests and helmets currently used by the Indian Forces are very heavy; causing a lot of discomfort. As per an estimate, there is also a requirement of over 50,000 bullet-proof kits for the Police Force in the country.
