11:30 am Interview:
Relaxing FDI norms in the defence sector is a move towards attracting more technology and the Ministry of Defence has come out with a list of technologies that India needs at this point in time, maintains JD Patil of L&T Defence.

He further said that any technology within the official document can come to India under the new FDI route.

"FII funds flows have always been petty in India, being nowhere close to a significant sum because of the controlled regime. We need defence modernisation and opening doors to FIIs will help us get more such technology," Patil adds.  

He is not bullish on big investments for he believes that the technology ownership hardly remains with the Indian company but with the government of that company.
