Odisha: Successfully Test Fired Surface To Air Missile In Balasore


Today, India has successfully test-fired a medium-range surface-to-air missile air defence system in Odisha. This test has been done on the Balasore coast. An official of DRDO has given this information. He said that this air defence system is part of the Indian Army. The official said that the missile directly attacked its target from a long distance in this test.

Earlier, India had successfully test-fired the BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missile surface-to-surface on 23 March. This test was done in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The defence officer had given information about this. He had told that this missile directly achieved its target. Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudha had congratulated him on the successful test-fire of this surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile.

India is constantly emphasizing the defence sector.

Significantly, India is continuously increasing its defence budget. The focus of the country is to become self-reliant in the defence sector. Therefore, the central government is constantly working to reduce India’s defence import (import) and increase export (export). India’s arms exports have jumped 6-fold in the last eight years.


India has exported arms worth Rs 11607 crore in the current financial year. Minister of State for Defense Ajay Bhatt gave this information in a written reply in the Lok Sabha. He said that in the financial year 2014-15, India had exported weapons worth 1941 crores, which has now reached Rs 11,607 crores in 2021-22.

Target to increase defence exports

In the last seven years, the Modi government has taken many important decisions to promote exports in the defence sector. The government has also set a target to increase the country’s defence exports to Rs 36,500 crore by 2024-25.

According to the ‘Stockholm International Peace Research Institute’ (SIPRI), India ranks third after the US and China based on spending in the defence budget. According to SIPRI, India has increased spending on the defence budget by 76 per cent between 2011 and 2020.
