Blacklisting of Defence Companies
In March, 2012, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) debarred the following six firms from further business dealings with it for a period often years:

(i) M/s. Israel Military Industries Ltd. (IMI).
(ii) M/s. Singapore Technologies Kinetics Ltd. (STK).
(iii) M/s. T.S. Kisan and Co. Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi.
(iv) M/s. R.K. Machine Tools, Ludhiana.
(v) Rheinmetall Air Defence (RAD), Zurich.
(vi) M/s. Corporation Defence, Russia (CDR).

The effects of blacklisting a firm on the procurement process depend upon several factors, including whether the firm is a single supplier or there are other vendors for a particular product in the market.These factors notwithstanding, the procurement process has been continued through alternative indigenous and foreign sources.
