1. The provision of ‘Make’ category of capital acquisition in Defence Procurement Procedure is a vital pillar for realising the vision behind the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government, by fostering indigenous capabilities through design & development of required defence equipment/product/systems or upgrades/ sub-systems/components /parts by both public and private sector industry/organization in a faster time frame.
2. As per DPP-2016, there are two sub- categories of ‘Make’ Procedure:
      a) Make-I (Government Funded): Projects under ‘Make-I’ sub-category will involve Government funding of 90%, released in a phased manner and based on the progress of the scheme, as per terms agreed between MoD and the vendor.
      b) Make-II (Industry Funded): Projects under 'Make-II' category will involve prototype development of equipment/system/ platform or their upgrades or their
sub-systems/ sub-assembly/assemblies/components, primarily for import substitution/innovative solutions, for which no Government funding will be provided for prototype development purposes.
3. Based on the experience and feedback of industry after promulgation of DPP-2016, Government in January 2018 has notified a separate, simplified procedure for sub-category ‘Make-II’ having many industry friendly provisions.
