The Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) of India has discussed the induction of the Akash domestically produced and developed surface-to-air missile defence system into the Indian Army.

Indian Defence Minister AK Antony said the request for proposal (REP) for the procurement of the Akash weapon system for the army had been issued to a defence public sector undertaking (DPSU).

The Indian Army is likely to place orders for two regiments of the missile system, according to Press Trust of India.

The Akash missile systems comprises a launcher, a missile with a 25km-30km range, control centre, multifunction fire control radar and supporting ground equipment.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) has already inducted two squadrons of the missile system, including its radar.
