A contract was signed on October 5, 2018 for delivery of S-400 Missile Defence system from Russia. The delivery will commence from October 2020 and will be completed by April 2023.

The system will provide a very capable air defence coverage to Vulnerable Areas/Vulnerable Points (VAs/VPs). The Government is aware of all developments that may impact procurement of defence equipment and it takes sovereign decision based on threat perception, operational and technological aspects to keep the Armed Forces in a state of readiness to meet the entire spectrum of security challenges.
