India's defence manufacturing, military and strategy trajectory has seen some radical changes in the past one decade. Both at the level of intent and action, vital changes are being witnessed. India is now positioned as the 3rd largest military spender in the world, with its defence budget accounting for 2.15% of the country’s total GDP. The global military spender is now carving a new identity as an arms' exporter. At the world level, India is now seen as a strategic player in the new emerging world order. Defence Watch was founded with the intent of telling the story of the domestic defence industry, with a dedicated focus on defence-related news.
