India’s Defence Budget 2020-21
Deceptive figures, faulty analyses
For year 2020-21, India’s Modi-led BJP government has allocated Indian Rupees (INR) 3,23,053 crore (about $45.8 billion at current exchange rate) for ‘defence services’. This excludes pensions and running of the defence administration—the ministry and the departments so concerned. It is 9.37 percent higher than the budget estimates for 2019-20. For modernization and buying new weapon systems, defence forces have been allocated Rs1,107.34 billion (PKR2,393 billion) which is Rs 103.40 billion more than what was provided in last year’s budget. A lion’s share of the budget has been allocated to the Army, followed by the Navy and the Air Force.
