India’s premier defence establishment, Defense Research and Development Organization, will produce next-generation missile BrahMos in Lucknow node of Uttar Pradesh Defense Industrial Corridor.

BrahMos Missile Supersonic Cruise Missile will be delivered in Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. Sudhir Kumar Mishra, CEO and M.D. of BrahMos Aerospace, met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday at his residence 5 Kalidas Marg.

The missile based on Russia’s P-800 Oniks cruise missile technology will give about 500 engineers direct employment in the BrahMos Production Centre.

According to the official sources, the centre is most likely to be built by investing Rs 300 crores on the land allotted for making BrahMos missiles at the Lucknow node.

Moreover, around 5,000 people will get indirect employment, and 10,000 will get work through the production centre.

The job of setting up the BrahMos Production Centre was on the anvil, said the sources.
The government sources claimed that over 100 BrahMos missiles planned to get built in the next three years.

Inviting the DRDO‘s drive, the central clergyman offered his colossal thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh had guaranteed Mishra that the state government would sincerely give all offices, including the land needed for this task in Lucknow.

BrahMos supersonic cruise missile currently designed, developed and produced by BrahMos Aerospace, a joint venture of DRDO, Government of India and Russia’s NPOM, Government of Russia.

At present, it is being used by the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force. This goes to show that the missile is incredibly reliable.

A UP government spokesperson said, “With the manufacturing of BrahMos missile in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh will move fast towards becoming the country’s aerospace and defence hub.

Up to 200 industrial units involved in manufacturing various systems and sub-systems of BrahMos missile will also move towards setting up their production units near the project.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the Defense Corridor project in UP during the Investors’ Summit in February 2018.

Further, the defence corridor would be developed across the state through six nodal districts, including Lucknow, Kanpur, Chitrakoot, Jhansi, Agra, and Aligarh.
