The MoD has con­tracted with an in­dige­nous de­fence man­u­fac­turer SMPP Pvt Ltd for pro­cure­ment of 186,000 bul­let­proof jack­ets for the In­dian Army at a cost of Rs 639 crore. “The con­tracted BPJs have con­tem­po­rary and state- of- the- art spec­i­fi­ca­tions with added pro­tec­tion lev­els and cov­er­age area. These er­gonom­i­cally de­signed BPJs have mod­u­lar parts, thereby pro­vid­ing im­mense pro­tec­tion and flex­i­bil­ity to sol­diers op­er­at­ing in dif­fer­ent op­er­a­tional sit­u­a­tions rang­ing from long-dis­tance pa­trolling to high-risk room in­ter­ven­tion sce­nar­ios.” SMPP will be­gin the sup­ply of the BPJs within the next few months and com­plete the en­tire or­der within a pe­riod of three years.
