Gujarat to host DefExpo 2022 from 10-13 March; MSMEs eye new opportunities
Defence Expo 2022, Gandhinagar, Gujarat to be held between 10th-13th March 2022

Ministry of Defence is hosting the 12th edition of prestigious biennial defence exhibition Def Expo 2022 from 10th to 13th March 2022 at Gandhinagar, Gujarat.  This mega defence International Exhibition is focussing on Land, Air, Naval, Internal Homeland security and electronic systems. Theme for Defexpo 2022 is “India-The Emerging Defence Manufacturing Hub”.

As the Country is celebrating “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsava” and India is moving towards “Atma Nirbhar Bharat” in all spheres, the Technology Development Fund Scheme is a step that was initiated 5 years ago with the same vision for Defence R&D. 

The Scheme was established to promote self-reliance in India’s defence technologies by building indigenous state-of-the-art systems for defence applications while providing support to industries, especially MSMEs and Start-ups. 

In a recent budget announcement, India has shown its commitment to a 25 percent Defence R&D budget for industries/academia which is a welcome step and DRDO is perfectly aligned to realize the vision of GoI through its schemes like TDF. 

The Government of India with policy initiatives of ‘Make in India” and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat” believes that India has tremendous potential to become a leading supplier of complete defence solutions to many of its friendly nations. 

Technology Development Fund (TDF) has been established to promote self-reliance in defence technology as a part of the ‘Make in India’ initiative. It is a programme of MoD (Ministry of Defence) executed by DRDO meeting the requirements of Tri-Services, Defence Production and DRDO.

The Def Expo 2022 provides a unique opportunity for firms within the defence industry to showcase their capabilities, products & services to the targeted audience of Industry leaders and business decision makers.
