India made quantum leap in space sector in last nine years: Jitendra Singh

New Delhi: Minister of state for science and technology Jitendra Singh on Friday said India has achieved remarkable progress in the space sector during the past nine years of the Modi government.

“Prime Minister Modi’s policy initiatives have played a crucial role in promoting indigenous design, development, and manufacturing of defense equipment, thereby fostering self-reliance in the defense sector. This has led to a quantum leap in the space sector,» said Singh at the India Defence Conclave 2023.

He said India’s defence industry has demonstrated its capability to manufacture a wide variety of high-end requirements, including tanks, armored vehicles, fighter aircraft, helicopters, warships, submarines, missiles, electronic equipment, special alloys, special-purpose steels, and various types of ammunition.

The Union Cabinet had approved the National Quantum Mission (NQM), with a total cost of Rs. 6003.65 crore from 2023-24 to 2030-31. The mission aims to nurture and scale up scientific and industrial research and development in quantum technology, fostering a vibrant and innovative ecosystem in India.
