Agility and specificity are two important concepts of any defence structure. Even the defence structure can be reduced in the field of air and water but on the lands the 'boots' (soldiers) are most important and it cannot be reduced. To tackle the conflicts of internal and external these boots are more important, hence to protect these boots sophisticated technology is more important. When it comes to the external these boots are protected by heavy armaments such as main battle tanks and allied vehicles. Hence DRDO - Defence Research and Development Organisation is in a steady business of invention and up-gradation of the existing and futuristic technologies for the better protection of the soldiers. Hence the DRDO has given a better technological support in form of Main battle tank of India - ARJUN. But the financial conflicts between the purchaser - Indian army and the producer - DRDO has given this business a wider gap. Hence the zone of buffer area has to be filled. Hence this paper intervenes the highlights of the DRDO and Indian defence comparing the existing tank business in the world.
