About the organizers
Vidarbha Industries Association (VIA) has joined hands with Defence
Innovators and Industry Association (DIIA), New Delhi to organize a full
day seminar on Opportunities for SMEs in Defence Sector. Keeping in tune with
the 'Make in India' initiative by Government of India, the Defence Ministry has
opened gates for private sector which has created abundant opportunities for
SMEs. It is to shed light on this green pasture, VIA - Nagpur and DIIA - Delhi have
jointly organized this seminar.
The objective of the seminar is to communicate to the SMEs in the region, the
immense potential / opportunities emerging in the Defence sector. These
opportunities are not just limited to Defence suppliers but also for the
companies in the field of IT, engineering, electronics, precision components,
sheet metals, castings, forging, plastics, etc. These SMEs have the opportunity
of becoming a part of the supply chain catering to Defence establishments in
India. There also exist opportunities under offset clause for SMEs to partner
with overseas Defence players.
The Seminar is designed to be highly interactive and will delve upon the many
facets of private involvement in Defence sectors. All queries and doubts put
forth by SMEs will be entertained and answered in complete detail to make the
process easy and transparent.

industries association. VIA works towards the promotion and harnessing of
balanced industrial development and tirelessly encourages entrepreneurial spirit
through its efforts which include organizing informative and interactive events.
Defence Innovators and
Industry Association (DIIA)
A non-profit organization, Defence Innovators and Industry Association (DIIA)
champions the view point that self-sufficiency in Defence can be achieved
through strong government policies that pro-actively encourage indigenous R&D.
It provides a platform for like-minded organizations to rally around, collaborate
and co-operate to forge ahead in making 'Make in India' a sustainable initiative.
The organization believes that indigenously designed, developed and
manufactured products should be given higher preference than the products that
are manufactured under Transfer of Technology (ToT), whether licensed or
bought-out technology. This aspect of encouraging and promoting indigenous
R&D has never been actively pursued by any industry association till date.
However, it is an undeniable fact that many Indian companies, particularly SMEs,
have been spearheading intense R&D efforts to indigenize Defence sub systems
and even complete equipment. These initiatives and success stories need to be
converted to fruitful business contracts which not only help the companies
sustain themselves but aids the nation in attaining the much needed strength in
matters concerning self reliant Indian Defence industry. This is one of the major
ideological view point that DIIA stands for and is attempting to promote.
Industries attached to Defence Sector, Ancillary Units, Start ups Consultants.
Industries in search of diversification opportunities like IT, Engineering,
Electronics, Precision Components, Sheet Metals, Castings, Forgings, Plastics,
Chemicals, Technical Textiles /Garment Manufacturing, etc.
