India has huge potential to become the R&D and manufacturing hub for global Aerospace and Defense industry. Atmanirbhar Bharat is the forward-thinking vision of new India to become self-reliant. Government of India has taken initiatives like Make in India, Digital India and Skill India which help to develop new technologies, improve manufacturing infrastructure, processes and supply chain. With these initiatives and acts, there are many opportunities for domestic as well as foreign companies to invest in R&D and manufacturing in India and establish the competitive position in domestic as well as international market. However, the opportunities that are encouraged by policies are also accompanied by many challenges to create a sustainable ecosystem.
