Govt liberalises defence manufacturing; delicenses products

New Delhi, Jun 26  In a major liberalisation, the government today allowed manufacturing of several hundreds of equipment and products in the defence sector without licence.

Manufacture of products such as sub-assemble items, components, castings, night-visions and surveillance would not require an industrial licence.

Simplifying the licensing process, a Commerce and Industry Ministry order listed four categories of products that would require prior permission and freed the rest from any licence condition.
