Since 2006, the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) has had provisions which require foreign vendors to disclose full details of any person, party, firm or institution engaged by them for marketing of their equipment in India, either on a country specific basis or as a part of a global or regional arrangement. These details include the scope of work and responsibilities that have been entrusted with the said party in India and are required to be submitted in the format prescribed in the DPP.
