Offsets Facilitation Cell DOMW/MOD

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) proposes to set up a Facilitation Cell of the Defence Offsets Management Wing (DOMW) at SCOPE Complex, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.  MOD has issued an office memorandum about operationalization of the Cell on Feb 14, 2014. Should take least time to make it operational. 

With the proper operartionalization of the Facilitation Cell, the foreign vendors and the Indian Offset Partners (IOPs) will be able to clarify their queries on offset related issues. The Cell is proposed to be manned on all working days of the week. A team from MOD will also be available on Tuesdays between 1000 and 1300 hours, and on Thursdays between 1430 and 1700 hrs.

The following is important:

  • Due authority be delegated to the Cell on Offset matters. All clarifications be in writing or on e-mails. Personal meetings be encouraged. Working on the Internet within security constraints is needed.
  • The Staff manning the Cell, needless to say, should have public face. DEO/MOD could be emulated. It is a functional model of the MOD.
  • As offsets relate to defence contracts, due care be taken in interface by the Staff with Public/Companies.
  • Ethics, Probity, and ‘fire’ to strengthen the Indian Defence Industry are important.

May be our 'Defence and Offsets Facilitation Portal',www.IndianDefenceIndustry.com, duly adapted, can fill the void straightaway.
