Voters will elect the candidate, whomever they think qualified,” CEC Huda added.The chief election commissioner further said the polling officials have to inspire the candidates to appoint agents in the polling stations, adding, “we face embarrassing situation for this all the time.

Strategic partnership with pvt firms panel to give norms

first_imgThe Defence Ministry has set up a high powered committee under the chairmanship of former DRDO chief VK Aatre to recommend guidelines for selecting Indian private firms for strategic partnership under ‘Make In India’ initiative in the six areas which include submarines, aircraft and missiles, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Saturday. “Instead of asking for tendering and all those things, a process of selecting a right partner is chosen. If you select through L1 (lowest bidder), you may end up with someone who is not capable. My aspect of success is capability of that partner,” Parrikar told reporters here on the sidelines of a FICCI organised seminar. He made it clear that there won’t be any repetition of the entity. “There won’t be repetition. If an X group has been taken in as a strategic partner in one segment, it will not be considered for another segment. It can participate in partnership for other products”.

You cannot have 10 private sectors (entities) or two private sector (entities) because obviously you cannot go on buying 100 submarines. The number is 30 as per Cabinet Committee on Security and may be we will go for a few more. But basically, you need one or two shipyards,” he said.

Who is that private sector, how do you select? It is not toss and neither my decision. So there has to be some mechanism and for that we have the committee under chairmanship of Aatre along with some top experts,” he said.  He said once the domestic strategic partner is selected, talks with foreign technology provider or FDI partner will be undertaken to carry out the project. Strategic partnership was one of the proposals of the Dhirendra Singh committee which had recommended a slew of steps to ease the defence procurement policy. The Aatre committee, which has experts from banking, chartered accountancy among others, has been asked to submit a report within three weeks, Parrikar said.  However, he added that a few more weeks might be given. The six segments identified are – aircraft and their major systems, warships of stated displacements, submarines and their major systems, armoured fighting vehicles and their major systems, complex weapons that rely on guidance system, C4ISTR (Command and Control System) and critical materials (special alloys and composites).last_img read more
