Abstract

With the coming to office of the Narendra Modi government in May 2014, the Indian defence sector, once again, has been raising global expectations (Daniel 2014). India is being courted as a lucrative market for defence supplies, and global vendors and foreign leaders are vying with each other to get the first-mover advantage. However, there have been so many false starts in the past that it would need some serious effort on the part of the Modi government to convince its external interlocutors that much like the past, this time too, it won’t be a damp squib.
