 Military aviation in the Armed Forces of India is undergoing a unique and seminal transformation.  At the same time the military aerospace market in India is expected to absorb over $ 150 bn in the next two decades. Indian Air Force strategic reach has acquired transcontinental dimensions. At one level global defence industry has been undergoing unprecedented changes especially in the aerospace sectors, which by definition exists at the top rungs of technology, and at the same time involves high financial and technological investments. The Government have laid down an Offsets Policy and a comprehensive defence procurement procedure.  Even at a 30% offsets level, foreign investments in defence areas alone would amount to over $ 50 billions in the next 20 years.
