Our armed forces have adequate defence equipment prepared to face any eventuality Arun Jaitley

Union corporate affairs minister Arun Jaitley on Friday said in the Lok Sabha that speedy steps are being taken against shell companies but a balance needs to be maintained between ease of doing business and ensuring that the firms are not misused.

"Our defence forces are ready to take on any eventuality", he said without making any specific reference to Doklam.

The Minister was responding to a supplementary question by Congress member Deepender Singh Hooda, who said the government had written off around Rs 59,000 crore of corporate loans. "Our defence forces have adequate equipment to face any eventuality", Mr Jaitely said.

The official twitter handle of the department on July 31 had said the move was made 'in view of difficulties faced by taxpayers.' However, the returns will not be processed until the linkage of Aadhaar with PAN is done. Thereafter, significant progress has been made. It is a continuous process. "The core expertise of these ODFs (ordnance factories) is (manufacturing) ammunition and they will continue to do that", he added.

He also assured the house that all Ordnance Factories Depots (OFD) will continue to operate and no employee would be retrenched. In response to another question on the government's target to achieve indigenisation by 2022, minister of state for defence Subhash Bhamre said taking into consideration the next 15 years, the forces have a long-term integrated (LTI) perspective on this.
