Defense Industrial Corridors: DICs

  • DIC refers to a route or path on which domestic production of defense equipment is carried out by the public sector, private sector and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) located at selected locations. These are aimed at enhancing the operational capability of the defense forces.
  • These corridors intersect with existing defense public sector companies to ensure better connectivity between various defense industrial units.
  • The government has made two such corridors in Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Importance of DICs:

  • These corridors will reduce the import of defense equipment and boost the export of these equipment to other countries.
  • According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) report, 2021, India ranks second in the list of arms importing countries.
  • These will help in achieving self-reliance in the defense sector. It will also create direct and indirect employment opportunities. These will also encourage the growth of private domestic manufacturers, MSMEs and startups.
