My review of ManMohan S Sodhi and Rajiv Bhargava’s edited volume “Perspectives on India’s Defence Offset Policy” appeared in The Business Standard.
This book sets out with the objective of compiling different perspectives of the primary stakeholders in this space: the Indian government, global original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and Indian industrialists.
Through these perspectives, the book aims to understand the evolution, and trace the possible future trajectories, of defence procurement and offset policies in India. The volume opens with a bird’s-eye-view of these perspectives, followed by three sections containing chapters by individual stakeholders, and concludes with a section emphasising the importance of Indian manufacturing.
