The army has also ordered a grenade for the first time under Make in India. In this project of Rs 409 crore, the army will get 10 lakh hand grenades from a private company. Till now India is using vintage design grenades of the time of World War II.

CCS has approved the fourth phase of the Army Static Switched Communication Network (ASCON). This work was stopped for a long time. It will take three years now for this communication system to be fully operational.
