India has become self-sufficient in missile technology with a wide range of missiles in its arsenal, according to Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister and former DRDO chief Dr G Satheesh Reddy. 

According to Dr Reddy, India has now developed a variety of missiles, including surface-to-surface missiles, surface-to-air missiles, air-to-air missiles and anti-tank missiles, among others.

Earlier, India had to depend on other nations for the development of various components, critical systems and sub-systems for missiles. However, due to the acceleration in defence technology domestically, India has been able to develop missiles indigenously.  He further mentioned that a lot of importance has been given to in-house missile development, by bringing in many teams, and partnering with industries, to achieve this feat.

Furthermore, expressing confidence in the indigenization of the country’s missile programme, Dr Reddy said that India is not dependent on any critical components of any other country today.
