New Delhi: Seeking to replace Chinese and other foreign clothing used for making military uniforms in the country, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is helping Indian textile industries produce yarns which will help to end reliance on import in this sector.

Director of Directorate of Industry Interface and Technology management (DIITM) at DRDO, Dr Mayank Dwivedi said that for Indian army's summer uniform alone, the approximate requirement of the fabric is 55 lakh metres and if all the requirements of Navy, Air Force and Para Military forces are added then the requirement may go well beyond 1.5 crore metres per annum.
