Abstract : In this paper, I will discuss science and technology innovation and its application in the Indian defence sector to achieve self-sufficiency and reduce defence imports. I plan to research India’s indigenization and how it affects the defence forces’ ability to manage the country’s security.
Furthermore, this study will examine India’s indigenization drive in the defence sector and assess how critical it is to become self-sufficient in this sector. What are the impediments to India’s dream of defence self-reliance? My core point is that India’s defence

sector Indigenization strategy is the key to strategic stability. This would improve our internal and external security, but only if the right mix of critical technology, research, and development, the military-industrial complex, a vibrant and robust scientific community, particularly among military scientists, institutional reforms, and policy initiatives are in place.
