India may stop importing ammunition

The Indian Army expects to stop importing ammunition in the coming fiscal year 2025-26 due to its ability to meet its demand with the domestic industry and increase India's share of the global ammunition market.

V. K. Sharma, Deputy Chief of the Procurement Department of the Ministry of Defense of India, announced this. The Indian Army gets about 150 out of 175 types of ammunition from the domestic industry. Foreign suppliers supply only 5-10% of the army's artillery shells and ammunition.
