Defence & Aerospace
India paved its way into the third of the four international export control groups when it joined the Wassenaar Arrangement in December 2017. The plenary meeting that took place from 6th-7th December 2017, decided to admit India as the 42nd participating state. This move at the international stage was then followed by a number of policies and practices adopted by the Government to boost the Indian Defence Industrial Base however, this came along with stringent compliance and regulatory measures, much owed to the nature of business governed by these policies and practices.
