RFID tags to keep track of ordnance factories’ ammunition
ammunition produced in all ordnance factories will get radio frequency identification (RFID) tags containing details of the make, batch and manufacturing date and time. This project will improve "traceability" of the ammunitions kept across the depots and for better mobilisation of such items in case of need. The ordnance factory is carrying out the project following discussions with the Army. This will entail an investment of Rs 400 crore with the process expected to start by end of this year, said sources in the ordnance factory board.
