Dear Dr. Saraswat Ji Jaihind
The very foundation of DRDO was laid to develop import substitute but with passage of time the new generation leaders, instead of delivering import substitute, like Trishu, Akash, Nag were left far behind and we are delivering Brahmos (Russian). Until and unless we fix accountability on ourselves and we are determined to develop our own indigenous product, nobody will appreciate the work of DRDO. The user will always prefer procuring directly from the developers, why will they ask you for half cooked product from DRDO. Whether it is missile, RADAR, Communication systems etc., in 60 years we have not delivered any system which is known as indigenous DRDO product.
Please ask this question to yourself several times and then you will get only answer “Don’t run behind many project; pick up a single item and put total effort on it; hand over the deliverable project to user. If a lab decided to deliver a product in 5 or 10 years, the poor tax payers will remain obliged to so called DRDO scientific experts”
Stop doing sundry projects in n numbers; do one but DRDO should have monopoly over it and should be proud for the same.
Corruption & nepotism add fuel to fire. People like Sh. R. C. Aggarwal director DEAL, who joined as charge-man, is spoiling the charter of duties of DRDO. The associate director of SDR Sh R K Aggarwal is infamous for violation of rules (his name is also in the CBI report No.PE-3(A) /2001 for association with M/S India Satcom Ltd – recommended for black list). Like Sh. Hemant Kumar Gupta, HMM, DEAL, Dehradun, he is always involved in minting money by all means. He travelled by bus several times but submitted taxi bills. On one occasion in 2003 the auditor found the fact and issue came to light. The then director Dr AS Bains constituted an inquiry committee and truth was found by committee of Sh Asok Sen and Sh Prakash Chand but matter was set aside by Dr AS Bains.
Same set of people are handling SDR’s fate with sole aim of minting money either through commission or omission.
Can you imagine that Sh R C Aggarwal and his commission or omission oriented team will able to deliver something worth SDR.
I guarantee you, like the originally conceived and proposed CNR, SDR will be a big failure. Whatever I am writing please do not ignore for the sake of DRDO and our country, please take inputs positively.
I hope Dr Sreehari Rao might have carried some organic vegetables for you from Sh RC Aggarwal’s kitchen garden ( DRDO funded).
