From the MD’s Desk

In this issue, I intend to write on the situation in Pakistan. Pakistan has been
extremely uncomfortable on the abrogation of special status ( albeit a temporary
one), to Jammu and Kashmir and has been going around the world to seek pity and
sympathy, in vain. The situation in Pakistan is one of despondency and lies, leading
to their own peril.

The Imran Khan government continued to target major opposition leaders through
the accountability process. Releasing a secretly recorded video at a press
Mrs. Shanti Kuber conference, PML (N) leader Maryam Nawaz alleged that the accountability judge,
who convicted and sentenced Nawaz Sharif to imprisonment, had admitted to an
acquaintance that he had been blackmailed into giving the verdict. PML (N) leaders insinuated that the
blackmailing had been done by the government along with the security establishment. In a well-
attended public meeting in Punjab later on, Maryam called for Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resignation.
Ruling subsequently on a clutch of petitions concerning the above video, the Supreme Court ordered
disciplinary action against the accountability judge. However, the apex court did not give any relief to
Nawaz Sharif, noting that the video might have relevance to his appeal pending in the Islamabad High
Court against his conviction by the accountability court. In a separate move, the National Accountability
Bureau (NAB) started the process of freezing Shehbaz Sharif’s assets in connection with a corruption
case against him. Former President Asaf Ali Zardari and former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi
remained under detention in connection with the corruption cases registered against them by NAB. In
early August, Maryam Nawaz, who was out on bail granted by the Islamabad High Court pending
consideration of her appeal against her conviction in a corruption case and was very vocal in criticizing
the government, was placed under detention by NAB in connection with another accountability case.
Media regulatory authorities targeted the media outlets giving publicity to the statements of prominent
opposition leaders. The much touted opposition unity against the government failed to take off. The
very first opposition move to oust the pro-government Chairman of Senate failed because of fourteen
senators from PPP and PML(N) failing to cast votes with their parties.

The IMF Executive Board approved the bailout package of $6 billion for Pakistan, on which a staff level
agreement had been reached earlier. However, media reports pointed out that Pakistan’s net receipt
under the package would amount to $1.65 billion only because while receiving $6 billion from IMF in the
next three years, Pakistan is due to repay $4.355 billion in the next four years in respect of the funding
received earlier. In a sign of increasing role of the army leadership in economic decision making, the
army chief, General Qamar Bajwa, who was included by Prime Minister Imran Khan in the newly
constituted National Development Council in June, defended the government’s tough economic
measures as indispensable and essential to strengthen the economy in the long term.

Prime Minister Imran Khan extended the tenure of the army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa by three years
beyond the first tenure of three years, which he is due to complete in November this year. A notification
on the above issued by the Prime Minister’s office added that the decision had been taken in view of the
regional security environment. The decision was in keeping with the rumours circulating for some time

September 2019 | DefInsights | 3

that Bajwa was interested in an extension. Earlier in 2010, the former army chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani was
also given extension for a full term of three years by the then PPP government. The reason then was the
government’s desire to continue with a General with whom they had developed a working relationship
rather than having to develop an equation with a new general all over again. Also, it could be a quid pro quo,
for bringing Imran Khan to power and may be Imran had little choice.

With the sword of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) blacklist hanging over its head, Pakistan continued
to take reversible measures to create an impression of its seriousness to put an end to terror from its soil. In
early July, the JuD head Hafiz Saeed and twelve other leaders of the terror outfit were booked for terror
financing and money laundering. Later in the month, Hafiz Saeed was arrested by the Counter Terrorism

On July 17, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) gave its ruling in the case filed by India against denial by
Pakistan of consular access to the Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav and the death sentence awarded to
him by a military court. ICJ decided that Pakistan had breached its obligations under the Vienna Convention
on Consular Relations (VCCR) by denying consular access to Jadhav. It directed Pakistan to provide, by means
of its own choosing, effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Jadhav, so as to
ensure that full weight was given to the effect of violation of the aforementioned rights of consular access
under the VCCR. ICJ also declared that a continued stay of execution constituted an indispensable condition
for the effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Jadhav. Pakistan stated that it
would abide by the judgment of the ICJ.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, accompanied by their army chief Qamar Bajwa and DG, ISI paid a visit to the US
from July 21 to 23. In a conciliatory gesture in early July, the US designated the Baluchistan Liberation Army
(BLA), which has been attacking Pakistani and Chinese interests in Baluchistan, as a terrorist group. A senior
US administration official stated on the eve of the visit that they wanted to send a message to Pakistan that
“door is open” to repair relations and build an enduring partnership if Islamabad changes its policies about
terrorists and militants.

Indian diplomacy will have to factor in the direction which Pakistani propaganda is now likely to take. This is
because Pakistan will appeal to the Islamic world and sections of western liberal opinion, particularly,
western media, which, Khan noted, had turned against India as never before. It hopes that by repeated lies
and false propaganda, internationally promoting the idea of a dangerous, fascist India, it will create a
narrative that will divert attention from its terrorism. India’s democratic and constitutional credentials are
strong; its economic trajectory globally attractive; it’s essential social peace and stability resilient. All this will
make Pakistan’s endeavours futile, but that does not mean it will not try, or that Indian diplomats can be
complacent. It will try to use the ground situation in the Kashmir Valley as the peg to hang its narrative. It,
therefore, follows that it will do its best not to allow it to settle down. All the talk of Khan becoming
Kashmir’s ambassador to highlight the so-called atrocities is an attempt in the same direction.

In mid-August, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced his government’s decision to appoint a
Chief of Defence staff (CDS), who will act as head of the Indian Army, Air Force, and Navy. The Indian
strategic community had long sought the establishment of a CDS. The latest version of the idea was initially
proposed in 2001 by a group of ministers tasked with reforming India’s national security apparatus in the


4 | DefInsights | September 2019

aftermath of the 1999 conflict with Pakistan in Kargil, where the Indian response was hampered by a lack of
coordination among the services. A CDS would help the armed services execute joint operations more
effectively no doubt and it is long overdue anyways. In India, defence reforms have become imperative due
to the changing nature of the national-security threats facing the country. China, for one, has made
impressive strides over the last two decades, better equipping its forces while also reforming its command-
and control-structure and establishing integrated “theatre commands,” which are meant to give the
branches of the Chinese military better ability to prosecute joint operations. Today, China has a greater
capacity to rapidly mobilise complex operations across the Tibetan Plateau and along the Sino-Indian
border—which makes India nervous.

As part of one of the biggest war-fighting transformations taken up by the Indian Army, future Integrated
Battle Groups will be set up on the basis of its tasks, threats and terrain where it will be located, top officials
said, adding that these formations will come up along the frontiers with Pakistan and China. The first
Integrated Battle Group (IBG) will come up under the army’s Yol-based 9 Corps under the Western
Command in the next two years, officials added. They said it will take about four to five years for the
complete ‘IBGisation’ of the army. Work is also being done on setting up IBGs in the eastern frontier. An IBG
will be tested in a war game in Arunachal Pradesh by this year-end. Having tested IBGs in the plains under
the Western Command, the army wants to see how well they will function in the mountains.

In the neighbourhood, Anti-government protests that have roiled Hong Kong for more than three months
spread to the sports field on Tuesday (Sept 10), as many local fans defied Chinese law to boo the country's
national anthem ahead of a soccer World Cup qualifier against Iran. The latest sign of unrest in the former
British colony followed another weekend of sometimes violent clashes, in which police firing tear gas
engaged in cat-and-mouse skirmishes with protesters who at times smashed windows and started fires in
the streets.

India’s Defence Minister Rajnath
Singh is on a five-nation East Asian
tour, starting with Japan, one of
India’s increasingly important
strategic partners. India’s ties with
Japan have grown tremendously in
the last decade, though there are still
many areas that remain untapped in
this relationship. India and Japan
have grown particularly close since
the Modi government took office in
2014. The personal chemistry
between the two heads of state, has
had a positive impact. Earlier this
year, the two countries agreed to
hold a two-plus-two ministerial
dialogue with the ministers of

September 2019 | DefInsights | 5

of defence and foreign affairs of the two countries. This will be the second such dialogue that India will be
engaged in after the India-U.S. 2+2 strategic dialogue. While specific details of the dialogue are not known,
one issue that was expected to be discussed was the sale of ShinMaywa US-2i amphibious aircraft to
India. The debate on the amphibious aircraft has gone on for a while now but the deal was reportedly stuck
because of pricing issues. Given the greater engagement of the Indian Navy and Coast Guard in stabilising
the Indo-Pacific, India is thought to be keen on this platform, if pricing issues can be resolved. The Japanese
company developing these aircraft has offered India complete transfer of technology, besides agreeing to
manufacture them in India. It seems more likely now.

Union Defence Minister
Rajnath Singh has
invited the Korean
Industries to explore the
feasibility of local
production of items,
used in main weapon
system, imported by
Indian Defence PSUs. He
proposed setting up of a
task force which
identifies such items
which are economically
viable and locally
produced in India
resulting in reduction of
import bill. While
addressing the CEO's of
Korean and Indian
Defence Industries in Seoul on Friday, in the presence of Minister of Defence Acquisition and Program
Administration, ROK, Wang Jung-hong, the minister said, ‘'The roadmap has listed a number of proposed
areas of co-operation in sectors of Land Systems, Aero Systems, Naval Systems, R & D co-operation and
collaboration in Testing, Certification and Quality Assurance.'

In another interesting development, the Indian government's immediate priority is to fast-track infantry
modernisation, including procuring 2,600 infantry combat vehicles and 1,700 future ready combat vehicles
for the Indian Army, has been making news. Another key priority is to procure 110 multirole fighter aircraft
for the IAF. "The government will spend USD 130 billion for fleet modernisation in the next 5-7 years across
all armed forces," the official document stated. The armed forces have been pushing for adequate allocation
of funds so that they are well prepared to deal with the possibility of a "two-front" war on both northern and
western borders. To bolster its operational capability, the Navy has already finalised a plan to have 200 ships,
500 aircraft and 24 attack submarines in the next 3-4 years. At present, the Navy has around 132 ships, 220
aircraft and 15 submarines. The sources said the government is also determined to significantly enhance
IAF's overall combat capabilities and a detailed plan is being finalised.

Some International Defence news:

South Korean defence company Hanwha Systems will incorporate a hull-mounted sonar (HMS) system on
each of the Philippine Navy's Del Pilar (Hamilton and Hero) class as part of a contract to upgrade the ships.
he PHP1.5 billion (USD28 million) contract, which was signed in late August, also includes works to install a
new integrated combat management system (CMS) and radar electronic support measures (ESM) across all
three ships in the class. United Aircraft Corporation subsidiary Russian Aircraft Corporation (RAC) MiG has
developed an export-oriented variant of its Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-35 multirole combat aircraft (MCA). The
MiG-35 export version is a 4++ generation MCA “made using some fifth-generation aircraft technologies”.
The platform has been fitted with a nose-mounted radar with an active electronically scanned array (AESA),
as well as an electro-optical search-and-track system installed under the fuselage for employment against
land targets. Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) unveiled new aerial tankers at the MAKS 2019
aerospace show. The company presented its new Ilyushin Il-78M-90A tanker based on the Il-76MD-90A
heavy airlifter. The export version of the Il-78M-90A is designated as the Il-78MK-90A. According to UAC, the
aircraft is in fact a multirole tanker-transport that, depending on range, transfers 47 – 78 tonnes of fuel or
has a payload of 60 tonnes. The US State Department on 27 August approved the possible Foreign Military
Sale of Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) to Lithuania for an estimated USD170.8 million. The agency said
Lithuania requested 500 JLTVs in the M1278A1 heavy gun carrier configuration, as well as unspecified
quantities of M153 Common Remote Weapon Stations (CROWS), MK-93 weapons mounts, and M2 12.7×99
mm heavy machine guns. The US Air Force (USAF) is laying the groundwork for a fifth-generation (5G) radio
frequency (RF) communications network at its bases, according to the service's top civilian. The service is
working with industry to install and sustain 5G networks at 10 USAF bases in the southeast United States.
Embraer has delivered the first KC-390 transport aircraft to the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira:
FAB), with an acceptance ceremony at the type's future operating base on 4 September. With a contract for
28 aircraft for Brazil being placed in 2014, the two flight test platforms are to be refurbished ahead of
delivery to the FAB for a final fleet of 30. Deliveries are due to conclude in 2026. Israeli company Rafael
Defence Systems and businessman Avihai Stolero have completed an acquisition of UAV manufacturer
Aeronautics. Both parties will hold a 50% stake. This acquisition marks Rafael's entrance into the UAS

Plenty on the Indian Defence Industry too, we will focus on that in our October issue.

Defence Procurement Manual 2019
Draft Update

By Sohil Patel The updated draft of Defence Procurement Manual 2019 was released on
13th Sep 2019. It has taken 10 years to get a new version of the DPM, which
is still in the draft stage. There have been some noteworthy amendments to
DPM 2009 and then there are areas that are still wanting for more. We shall
take a foretaste of the changes proposed in DPM 2019 through this brief

A few chapters have been rearranged in the 2019 draft, the reasoning not
being clear at this point, for ease of reading or better sequential ordering of
topics. The most significant changes have been the addition of the following
chapters in the DPM 2019 Draft:

Chapter 11 - ICT Procurement

Chapter 12 - Procurement of Consultancy services

Chapter 13 - Outsourcing of Non-Consultancy Services

This indicates the growing requirement for Information and Communication
Technology (ICT) products and services within the Indian Armed Forces. ICT
goods and services refers to the entire range of IT equipment, Software,
automation solutions, customized/bespoke software development,
solutions for enterprise-wide applications etc.. It is to be noted that this
procedure will not be applicable to acquisition of ICT enabled weapon
systems/ aircrafts, ships and equipment platforms that are procured to
enhance the combat capabilities of the Armed Forces.

The Armed Forces have also felt the need of hiring external experts where it
lacks in capability and capacity. These Consultancy Services typically involve
providing expert or strategic advice like management consultants, policy
consultants, communications consultants, Advisory and project related
Consulting Services, engineering services, finance, accounting and taxation.

The other notable amendments in the DPM 2019 draft are, for obvious
reasons, to do with e-Procurement and Make in India. DPM 2019 gives
priority to purchasing through the Government e-Marketplace (GeM portal)
and e-tendering process has been documented in detail. E-publishing and E-
Procurement have been added in the Types of Tendering.

With regards to Make in India, Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) have

September 2019 | DefInsights | 9

been given product reservations and other facilities like exemption of earnest money deposit. Purchase
preference shall be given to local suppliers (as defined in policy) in all procurements undertaken by procuring
entities as per Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion. Ministry of
Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has notified a policy vide Notification No.33(3)/2013-IPHW
dated 23.12.2013 for Preferential Market Access (PMA) in Government procurement for Domestically
Manufactured Electronic Products (DMEP), having a specified minimum domestic Value Addition (VA) for

Defence Procurement Procedure Primer

Part 17 – Defence Procurement Procedure for
‘Make’ Category - Chapter III

Continued from Part 16. Chapter III outlines the procedure for procurement
under Make category, more specifically Make I category. (Chapter IIIA
outlines procedure for Make II).

Design and Development of Prototype for Make-I Sub-Category

By Sohil Patel The design and development stage under ‘Make-I’ projects is expected to
undergo the following phases:-

 Project Definition Phase - This phase is a prelude to the Preliminary Design Phase and involves
mobilisation of initial start-up resources, including development laboratories etc., as specified in the
agreed DPR.

 Preliminary Design Phase - During this phase, the design parameters are established for configuration,
performance in compliance to user’s requirements and trade-off in the design. This also takes into
consideration various tests and studies to be conducted.

 Detailed Design Phase - This phase includes the detailed design of systems/sub-systems down to all
components. Specifications of various equipment, systems and sub-systems that are to be used in the
product/equipment/weapon systems would be finalised and all PSQRs frozen and they will be duly
ratified as SQRs by respective SEPC/ISEPC. Permissible variance wherever acceptable, may be indicated
as a range/percentage of SQR parameters. Engineering design documents, drawings, process planning
would be firmed up.

 Fabrication/Development Phase - Manufacture of sub-assemblies would be carried out based on the
final specifications arrived at in the detailed design phase. Limited quantities, as given in the EoI and
agreed to in DPR, can be fabricated/developed against the total prototype quantities required for
subsequent stages.

 Test & Analysis Phase - Concurrent with the design phase, testing of several components, system/sub-
system is undertaken. Test and analysis should also include software verification. Design testing
through simulation can also be undertaken. The testing may require specialised facilities like conduct of
proof firing and extensive firing trials for weapon systems. Provisioning of laboratory and other in-
house facilities and special equipment, if any, shall be made on terms and conditions as agreed upon in
the approved DPR.

 Integration Phase During this phase, various systems and sub-systems are integrated and the system
integration testing is carried out in accordance with the test procedures approved and agreed upon.
The integration procedure, the interface details, the performance and assembly of modules/sub
systems would be finalised.

 Performance Evaluation Phase After the integration of the various sub-systems, the prototype would be
subjected to technical and limited field trials to assess the overall performance of the systems against
stated SQRs by the development agencies and IPMT. Based on the test and analysis conducted by
them, there may be a need for change of design to meet essential SQRs. This is a continuous process
until the design is finally proven and meets the essential SQRs, subject to agreed time limits as per
approved DPR.


20 | DefInsights | September 2019

User Trials

User trials would be carried out by the SHQ in close consultation with IPMT to validate the performance
of the system against the parameters/specifications approved after the development of prototype. SHQ
will formulate the Trial Directive and constitute the Trial Team.

The SQRs of the equipment would therefore be a part of the Trial Directives and only the essential
parameters as detailed in the SQRs will be tested.

Based on the inputs of SHQ/IPMT, the DPR will clearly include the list of trials/items/facilities/
consumables, which will be provided free of cost during trials.

Staff Evaluation

Based on the User Trials, the SHQ would carry out a Staff Evaluation, which gives out the compliance of
the demonstrated performance of the equipment vis-à-vis the SQRs.

Once the Staff Evaluation report is accepted and final installment under prototype phase as per DPR has
been released, no more funds would be released from ‘Make Procedure-Prototype Development

The procedure followed for procurement would thereafter be same as for ‘Buy (Indian-IDDM)’ from the
successful DA/Das

Solicitation of Commercial Offers

A Request for Proposal (RFP) would be issued to the agencies accepted in the Staff Evaluation report for
soliciting their commercial offers and additional technical information/ documentation, as may be

In case of development by an AoP, RFP shall be issued to ‘Lead Partner’ who will submit an undertaking
to supply the required quantities under Buy (Indian-IDDM) phase with life cycle support for the product.

Commercial Negotiations by Contract Negotiation Committee (CNC)

The CNC will carry out all processes from opening of commercial bids till conclusion of contract.

In cases involving large quantities and where multiple technological solutions are acceptable, on approval
of DAC/DPB/SCAPCHC, an option may be provided in the EoI during the ‘Make’ phase and subsequently
in the RFP for the ‘Buy (Indian-IDDM)’ phase for procurement of specified quantities from other vendors
(referred to as L2 herein) who have successfully developed the prototype/product, on the condition that
this second vendor accepts the price and terms & conditions quoted by the L1 vendor.

Consequent to approval of the CFA, the procurement contract(s) would be signed by the Acquisition
Manager/Director (Procurement) concerned in the Acquisition Wing or by officer authorised by PSO .

Project Management, Review and Monitoring

The progress of the ‘Make’ phase would be monitored by the IPMT under overall guidance of respective
PMU as per the defined milestones listed in the DPR, including generation of Intellectual Property.

All contemporary Project Management tools and practices, relevant for Design and Development of
Technology intensive projects, shall be employed by IPMT.
