New Year 2000


I am delighted to greet all members of DRDO family on the occasion of the New Year and the New Millennium. May the New Year bring happiness, prosperity and success to all teams in the laboratories, programmes, our missions abroad and in Antarctica. Dedicated efforts of DRDO members and our partners resulted in many breakthroughs and successes in the previous years, taking us forward in our mission of providing technological strength to the nation and empowering our Armed Forces with best weapon systems. This has helped in enhancing self-reliance index substantially.

I am very confident that in the New Year, the scientists, officers and staff of DRDO will reach higher standard of performance and will facilitate the laboratories/establishments in all respects in achieving the DRDO objectives.

I wish all of you success in this endeavour.
