India on Sunday announced a negative arms list, under which import of 101 weapons and platforms will be progressively banned from December 2020 to December 2025, in a bid to bolster the indigenous defence production sector.


The defence ministry (MoD) said the list will be updated periodically, without compromising on the operational requirements of the armed forces, to allow lead-time to the domestic industry to prepare itself for any such procurement orders.
