In a move to strengthen the Armed Forces by relying on indigenous capability to take forward the initiative on Atmanirbhar Bharat, the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) under the Chairmanship of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh accorded approval for capital acquisitions of various platforms and equipment required by the Indian Armed Forces on 11 August 2020. 
 
DAC has approved proposals for an approximate cost of Rs 8,722.38 crore. 
 
With Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) having successfully developed Basic Trainer Aircraft (HTT-40) prototypes and certification process underway, DAC approved procurement of 106 Basic Trainer Aircraft from HAL to address the basic training requirements of the Indian Air Force (IAF). 
 
Post-certification 70 Basic Trainer Aircraft will be initially procured from HAL and balance 36 after operationalisation of HTT-40 fleet in IAF. 
 
To improve the fire power of the Indian Navy, DAC approved procurement of an upgraded version of Super Rapid Gun Mount (SRGM) which is fitted as the main gun onboard the Navy and Indian Coast Guard (ICG) warships from Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL). 
 
The upgraded version of SRGM has enhanced capability to perform against fast manoeuvring targets like missiles and Fast Attack Crafts and increase the maximum engagement range. 
 
In view of the availability of requisite capability for indigenous development of the ammunition, both in terms of manufacturing and technology, DAC approved procurement of 125 mm Armour Piercing Fin Stabilised Discarding Sabot (APFSDS) ammunition for the Indian Army as a Design and Development Case. 
 
The ammunition being procured will have 70 percent indigenous content. 
 
DAC also gave approvals that are likely to speed up the procurement of AK 203 and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle upgrades.
