The government informed Parliament on Wednesday that the order books of the defence ministry’s nine defence public sector undertakings (DPSUs) currently amount to Rs 2.32 trillion.

The biggest among them is Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL), with an order book of Rs 59,832 crore. Given its turnover last year of just over Rs 20,000 crore, that amounts to assured production orders for the next three years. This includes on-going orders for some 15 Sukhoi-30MKI fighters, 24 more Tejas light combat aircraft and a range of indigenously designed and built helicopters.
