The Indian Army and Confederation of Indian Industry commemorate its 25 long years of partnership. The first formal “Army - Industry Partnership” Conference was held on 14 & 15 September 1995.  The Industry and the Army have come much closer since that first flagship event and today the understanding between the two is cemented to an extent that almost 60% of defence orders in 2015-2019 were placed  on the Indian Industry with the figures improving by the day. This is a matter of pride not only for the entrepreneurial instincts of Indian Industry but for the Indian Army and the Nation as a whole.
