Non-Fulfilment of Armed Forces Need for Ammunitions
Arms and equipment are available in adequate quantity in the Armed Forces. Shortage of certain types of ammunition, as and when reported, is addressed through indigenous production and imports.

During the last two years, 50 Su-30 MKI fighter aircraft were procured and contracts for procurement of 40 Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer, 20 Light Combat Aircraft, 29 MiG 29K aircraft and 11 helicopter carrying ships were signed. 100% of outlay for modernization of Armed forces was spent in 2010-11.
