Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar Saved Rs.50K Crore Of Your Money With A Wise Move

It is always good to have an intelligent Minister at the helm of affairs.

Parrikar, who is an alum of IIT-Bombay, saved Rs. 49,300 crore of the taxpayers’ money when he convinced the Indian Air Force into not pressing for acquiring short-range air defence systems.

Short-range missile defence systems have a range of 25 km, while medium range ones can strike incoming missiles and aircraft upto 40-50 km.



IAF was planning to buy over 100 such installations.
