www.indianpsu.com had earlier reported about the Tender floated by Army for procurement of new Combat Uniforms with restrictive conditions ignoring the 4 Ordnance Factories under the TCL Corporation.
The AIDEF has already filed a complaint with Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh requesting him to cancel the Tender floated by the Army and to place the indent on the Ordnance Factories since there is no work for these Factories from 2023-24. CPI MP Binoy Viswam also has taken up the matter with the Defence Minister. In his letter the MP has alleged that there is a vigilance angle in the Tender floated by the Army and hence it needs to be canceled. He also requested that the task of manufacturing Combat Uniform should be given to the Ordnance Factories.
