The Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar gave away the Raksha Mantri Awards for Excellence for the years 2012-13 and 2013-14 here today in recognition of exemplary performance amongst Ordnance Factories and the nine Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSUs). Speaking on the occasion Parrikar call upon the DPSUs to compete with the private sector. He emphasised that the government’s efforts are to indigenise production. He further stated that based on his experience government is a powerful institution which can effectively deliver in a restricted timeframe, while following the procedures.
