    in PPP terms, the answer is 'Yes'. SIPRI is among the most reputed source of information about defence budget in world and they have credible measurement using "IMF World Economic Outlook database" to get PPP value of defense budget of different countries, as stated in the above post :agree:

    When 70% of the Hardware is imported, PPP does mean anything at all.

    Let me once again talk shop here.

    As per Kalki avataar, he will be born sometime in 2014 or already born in 1992. This is as per the astrological predictions of his arrival. It is quite possible that he will manifest himself in 2035. That is the date when India will become the only super power in the world in terms of money power, muscle power and tech power. It is all foretold and predicted.

    out of total defense budget of India, share of Capital Budget is around 40%. and out of total Capital Expenditure of 40%, only 10% (25% of capital expenditure) is used to import arms from rest of world. and also, Russia supply around 70% of Indian defence arms and most of the russian arms are made in India itself, like SU30mki/ T90 tanks etc whose full production line are based in India itself. :meeting:
