Govt. nod for 4th Positive Indigenisation List for DPSUs

Continuing the efforts to minimise imports by defence public sector undertakings (DPUSs), the Defence Ministry has approved the fourth Positive Indigenisation List (PIL) of 928 strategically important line replacement units (LRUs), sub-systems, spares and components, including high-end materials and spares, with an import substitution value of ₹715 crore, a Ministry statement said on Sunday.

“The DPSUs will soon initiate procurement action for these notified items. The industry may look for expression of interest (EoI), request for proposal (RFP) on the Srijan portal dashboard, especially designed for this purpose, and may come forward to participate in large number,” the statement said.

This fourth list is in continuation of the previous three indigenisation lists, which were published in December 2021, March 2022 and August 2022, respectively.
