Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan is a great initiative to make India a self-reliant country in every aspect of growth and inclusive development. This scheme will boost our defence system and make India an important part of the supply chain of defence equipment and it also minimizes the burden of imports and empower the economy.
