General Rawat went on to discuss modernisation plans of the army, saying that the government is aware of our all needs and is supporting us in every manner. "Make in India is a good initiative, it will give results in two to three years," said General Rawat.
General Rawat added that all armies across the world maintain an inventory in the ratio of the 30:40:30. In India, 30 percent equipment is of state-of-art technology; another 40 percent is undergoing modernisation and the remaining 30 percent is obsolete, which requires an upgrade.
