I am delighted to greet all members of DRDO family on the occasion of the New Year and wish - May this New Year  bring peace, health, happiness and success to all of you and your families . The enthusiasm and dedication of our scientists is something to be proud of. Several of our major programmes are nearing completion and I anticipate that many of the systems would be inducted into service in the near future. Dedicated efforts of DRDO members together with our partners have helped in exploiting the synergy of our respective core competencies to achieve our mission of self-reliance in developing military technology in India.

I am confident, 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 once again wish all of you Season 's Greetings and Happy New Year 2001.
