Republic Day 2023: Every country on earth needs a strong military industrial infrastructure (MII) in order to have a strong Gross National Power (GNP), which consists of a thriving economy, abundant natural resources, and strong armed forces.
India needs strong Military Industry Infrastructure (MII) to confront and prevail over its hostile neighbours
Due to its geopolitical situation, India is surrounded on its northern and western flanks by two hostile neighbours that have powerful militaries and with whom it has fought several wars. India’s neighbours on its northern and eastern borders are China, with whom it shares boundary disputes. Through their use of “grey zone warfare,” the Chinese have repeatedly provoked India and have acted aggressively toward our country in 1962.
We have Pakistan on our western border, with whom India has fought three big wars that it has comprehensively lost. Despite major losses, insurgency and low-cost proxy conflicts are still an issue for India.

India earns dubious tag of being world’s largest importer Millitary Hardware
Despite having a broad network of Defense Labs run by DRDO, India was forced to acquire weapons due to widespread militarization and ongoing challenges to its sovereignty.
India earned a dubious distinction of being the largest importer of defence hardware in the world. However the things are changing due to progressive defence policies unveiled by the Government of India.
India’s defence planners aware of stark asymmetry in indigenous defence manufacturing
Indian policymakers and defence planners are aware of the significant asymmetries that exist in the production of domestic defence equipment. India’s resources may be strained in the event of a two-front war, and it will be reliant on other nations for weaponry and spare parts.
India is pursuing Atmanirbharta (Self Reliance), and the Republic Day Parade will feature Indian-made military hardware
India is moving toward independence and Atma Nirbharta as a result of the government’s steadfast efforts in domestic defence manufacture.
On Republic Day 2023, India will put on exhibit its Swadeshi military weapons along Kartavya Path. During this year’s Republic Day Parade, LCH Prachand, which will fly for the first time in the flypast, will command attention. It will be joined by the Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) Dhruv and its armed version.
India’s tank contingent will be led by Arjun Main Battle Tanks (MBT), which are marvels of defence architecture. The K-9 Vajra Howitzer, the Nag Anti-Tank Guided Missile, the Akash Air Defence Missile, the Bramhos Supersonic Cruise Missile, and Quick Reaction combat vehicles are also part of the marching contingent.
India’s demonstration of its homegrown defence system is an indication of its intention to be powerful. At recent years, India has established itself as a naval shipbuilder, building its own warships in its own shipyards. Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft, a fifth-generation fighter jet, is being developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) (AMCA).
The Republic Day Parade in 2023 will highlight the emergence of an assertive India, one that is determined to produce defence hardware and equipment for both its own self-defense needs as well as for export markets that are looking to buy defence equipment from a nation that is willing to stand in their time of need.
