Nirmala Sitharaman to launch Tamil Nadu Defence Corridor

Nirmala Sitharaman to launch Tamil Nadu Defence Corridor

Defence Minister Nirmala Seetharaman formally launched the Tamil Nadu Defence Industrial Corridor at Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu.

This will be the country's second defence industrial corridor after the first one was launched in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh August last year.

Both the corridors were announced in the last Union Budget as part of measures to build an indigenous defence production ecosystem.

The Tamil Nadu corridor is expected to have six nodes at Trichy, Salem, Hosur, Kovai, Madurai as well as Chennai. It is expected to be a specialised facility in precision centred, aero component manufacturing.


So far, several European aerospace and defence companies have started operating out of Tamil Nadu. The proposed corridor is expected to build on the existing defence ecosystem in the form of Ordnance Factory Boards, vendors working with defence Public Sector Undertakings and other allied industries.
