    India is likely to conduct a trials on its ballistic missile system by the year end, for intercepting the 'enemy or target ballistic missile', at a distance 'longer than 100 kilometres’.
    "We know that the talks about installing the BMD system at Delhi and some other cities have been doing the rounds for quite some time. But so far nothing has been finalised on this front. What we are working on is that in order to protect important border establishments, the BMD system can be placed in such a way that it would intercept enemy missile bang inside the enemy country itself. Thus, the target would be engaged far away from the point of deployment of the defence system and the debris would also fall far off, causing little damage to our territory," an Indian official was quoted as saying by the Times Of India.
    The BMD system, part of the Advanced Air Defence ( AAD) system, is being spearheaded by DRDO's Missile Complex and is a unique two-tiered or a twin-layer system consisting of two interceptor missiles for both high and low altitude interception and handling of target ballistic missiles.
