"But I can't for a moment imagine that I will prevail upon them that they necessarily buy what is Indian, much against certain other requirements which they may want to look at", the Defence Minister added. Addressing a press conference on the sidelines of the DefExpo 2018 (defence expo) here, the minister said her ministry had given emergency powers to the services to decide on the type and amount of equipment and ammunition to be purchased. "They are free to choose their equipment", she said. "We have given an opportunity to various organisations under Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) to have multiple spaces to display".

To that end, the DefExpo is focusing on India's ability to successfully manufacture defence systems - a shift from offering foreign firms a platform to showcase products the country could buy. India is considered as the largest importer of defence products. INS Sahyadri is indigenous built multi-role frigate with stealth and attack capabilities and INS Kamotra is again indigenous built anti-submarine warfare corvette.
