ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE (SHRI SHRIPAD NAIK)
IN THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE


(a) to (c): The Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) sector has the potential to act as a pivot for the development of the Aerospace & Defence sector.
The recent rationalization in the GST structure is likely to facilitate MRO activities within India.
There are large number of public and private MRO facilities including HAL catering to Military and Commercial aerospace within the country.
This sector would also open opportunities for the components industry and their active involvement would enable life-cycle support of the major platforms.
