The appearance of India’s second defense industrial corridor

On January 20, 2019, Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman inaugurated the Tamil Nadu Defence Industrial Corridor from Tiruchirappalli to give impetus to native production of defense equipment. 
It is India’s second defense industrial corridor which will link leading military manufacturing units in five cities of South India, including Chennai, Hosur, Coimbatore, Salem, and Tiruchirappalli at an estimated expenditure of Rs. 3,000 crore. The first defense industrial corridor was established in Uttar Pradesh.
As per the UP government, the proposed defense corridor is suitably located with good road connectivity and has existing manufacturing bases including three units of HAL in Kanpur, Korwa and Lucknow, ordnance factories in Kanpur, Tundla, Korwa, Ghaziabad and Shahjahanpur, and BEL in Ghaziabad. 

In February, at the UP investors’ summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had first announced the creation of a defense industrial corridor in the state.
