Defence Budget

           

The defence budget for the year 2011-2012 is Rs.1,64,415.49 crore which is 13.07% of the total expenditure budget of Rs.12,57,729 crore of the Union Government for the year 2011-2012. It is difficult to compare the defence expenditure of various countries because of non-availability of detailed data and also because what is included in the defence budget varies from country to country.
