Tata Technologies Signs MoU With Vidarbha Defence Industries Association
Tata Technologies, a global engineering services provider, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Vidarbha Defence Industries Association (VDIA) at the ‘Made in Vidarbha in Aerospace and Defence’ summit held last week in Nagpur. This partnership will lead to the setting up of a new state-of-the-art aerospace and defence centre in Nagpur. The MoU was signed in the presence of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis.
In alignment with the ‘Make in India’ initiative, this centre will help establish Maharashtra as the preferred investment destination for aerospace and defence manufacturing, promote indigenous and modernised technological capabilities and develop skilled resources to support Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to be globally competitive in the aerospace and defence sector. This will be done by setting up 'NIRMAN', a not-for-profit common facilitation centre for aerospace and defence and ‘UDAN’, an initiative to create high-end skilling centres and provide competency-based education for engineering institutes and universities. The partnership between Tata Technologies and VDIA supported by the Government of Maharashtra, will promote the state as an aerospace and defence manufacturing and export hub.
