    DRDO continues to resist the P Rama Rao Committee's report because that would mean many senior serving scientists would have to remain jobless and some have to take retirement.

    DRDO continues to resist the P Rama Rao Committee's report because like all government departments it has grown into a self serving monster.

    Here is a debate on the nature and functioning of DRDO-

    AK Antony is an inbred idiot. ???** will never admit that the problem with DRDO is not number of projects, but how they are managed and funded.

    No one wants to change the management structure at DRDO. The insiders because it would mean weeding out the non-performing majority, and then there's organizational inertia. The outsiders also don't want things to change, because if the changes brings improvement someone might get the idea to implement reforms at IAS level.

    And we can't have that, now can we? So the few "cream" competent young DRDO engineers continue to suffer, or give up and join private sector. The filth though continues to accumulate at DRDO, they are happy collecting the monthly cheques and a pension, to them it is just another job.

    In a country with slum level infrastructure and no domestic manufacturing to speak of, DRDO engineers are "given target" to manufacture a jet engine or CMOS sensor at a price of a Mercedes S-Class.

    And "managing" these projects are unqualified, washed out clowns who have never done any "physical" engineering, all their experience is in paper pushing only. If you ask anyone of them to weld a piece of steel or even stick together two pieces of plastic with superglue, they will look at you as if you are mad.

    Low quality people nurture and promote other low quality people. DRDO is caught in a vicious circle. Something fundamental has to change in the country's governance structure before DRDO can start delivering world class products. Why blame Antony only, in this great country the PM ???? ??????? ???? himself asks the private companies not to focus "too much" on profits.

    Fucking ridiculous.

    and as for ARMED forces criticizing DRDO for not being competent then the ARMED FORCES are wrong about this because all the people with officer's like quality are selected by ARMED FORCES and then there is nothing left in country for DRDO so that it can hire good engineers so its not DRDO's problem

    "What cannot be measured, cannot be managed"

    This goes in to the deeper problem of govt employees not having any performance measures to achieve. Do whatever, whenever… If the government was serious they should put in targets of achieving certain milestones and if you repeatedly dont, you get fired.

    as somebody who works in the org i can tell you that the P Rama Committe e reccomendations are the normal stuff most committees in india produce. they are rubbish. the committee didnt even try to understand interlinkage between tactical and strategic projects. using terms and jargon, they want drdo to take away a structure that has taken 2 decade of hard work and many trial and error attempt to perfect and create new bureaucratic structure nobody knows will work or not. already correct structure exists in terms of clusters focusing on systems and this has delivered very well over past decade but now this committee comes along and suddenly decides to do some crazy stuff. even more funny is that they want drdo to do only strategic systems, what they are not even understanding is that strategic systems cannot be achieved without mastery of tactical systems to high degree. you cannot make AESA radar for PAD project unless you work on ESA system for Akash.

    p rama rao committee suggestions are nonsense and only lapped up by media and drdo bashers who routinely believe such stuff.

    last anon, yes many seniors are worth their weight in gold. lot to learn from.
