Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today launched a re-designed website of Department of Defence Production (DDP) which is more user friendly, universally accessible and less vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The web pages on the portal have been made more responsive and easy to access through different devices like desktop, tablet PCs and mobile phones with varying screen sizes.
The website has also been optimised for viewing by different browsers and operating systems, a statement by the Defence Ministry said.
The website of DDP provides news updates, policies, procedures, publications, directory of officials and media contents such as e-book, photo-gallery etc.
A link for online service of the Department – ‘Application for NoC for Export of Military Stores’ has been provided.
One of the salient features of the website is that it is interactive and suggestions and clarifications related to defence production can be given or sought through the online feedback form.
Another feature of the website is its accessibility by visually impaired persons and persons with motor disabilities, who can access the web content using screen readers and other assistive technologies through accessibility links and icons conveniently placed on the standardised header and footer.
“I hope the website will be regularly updated,” Parrikar said, underlining that the interaction should be constant.
