An Indian scientist, Dr. Shantanu Bhowmick, designed a bullet-proof jacket which has now received the Indian Government’s approval.

The jacket which is made indigenously from ultra-lightweight modern thermoplastic technology has been approved by the Ministry of Defence.

Prof. Bhowmick is the head of aerospace engineering at Amrita University in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore. This initiative will be included in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ project. After the PM’s office gives the green signal the manufacturing of the jackets will begin.

This is the first time in 70 years that the Indian Army will have bullet-proof jacket which will be manufactured completely using indigenous technology.

Currently India spends Rs 1.5 lakh on a single jacket, weighing anywhere between 15-18 kgs, used by the military and para-military forces which are imported from America.

This new jacket will cost only Rs 50,000 per jacket and weigh just 1.5 kg.
