This short paper examines certain contentious aspects of the AVRO Replacement case under progress by the Ministry of Defence in India. The analysis is based on perspectives focused on India’s Defence Production Policy and National Manufacturing Policy, in view of certain concerns raised by two other government bodies/departments and the Ministry’s recent decision to relook at the acquisition case in response. The paper culminates with some suggestions on a possible way forward that addresses the issues in dispute in a manner fully consistent with these two important government policies.
