Department of Defence Production issues notification for re-organisation of DGQA

| @indiablooms | 28 Mar 2024, 04:22 pm

New Delhi: The Department of Defence Production under the Ministry of Defence has issued a notification for re-organisation of the Directorate General of Quality Assurance (DGQA), which is aimed at speeding up quality assurance processes and trials and reducing layers of decision-making.

This re-organisation also factors in a change in the Quality Assurance methodology and revised role of DGQA post corporatisation of OFB, a Defence Ministry statement said.

With the corporatisation of Ordnance Factories into new DPSUs, increased participation of the private defence industry, and impetus by the Government towards indigenisation, a need was felt to re-organise DGQA for effective and efficient support to the emerging defence manufacturing industry.

DGQA has already been steering various organisational and functional reforms after active discussions with all stakeholders in the defence manufacturing ecosystem.

The new structure under implementation will enable single point technical support for the complete equipment/ weapon platform at all levels and also ensure uniformity in product-based QA.

The new structure also provides a separate Directorate of Defence Testing and Evaluation Promotion to facilitate the transparent allocation of Proof Ranges and testing facilities.

This arrangement coupled with automation and digitisation of standardised QA processes, is likely to significantly improve the engagement of Defence Industry with DGQA.

The re-organised structure and ongoing functional reforms will give an impetus to indigenisation drive under ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ with the availability of Indian standards/ equivalent to guide manufacturers within the country, and this will also boost the export of high quality qualified defence products.
