A number of the main orders acquired throughout the yr are ICU ventilators, software program outlined radios & communication tools.
Bharat Electronics (BEL) reported increased than anticipated FY21 provisional revenues (in step with steerage) at Rs 135 bn. This highlights the (i) buoyancy in defence finances seen over CY20; (ii) BEL’s capability to maintain diversifying its income stream as indicated by the execution combine; and (iii) BEL’s capability to execute in an accelerated method 30,000 ICU ventilator.
