Hyderabad, Apr 2 (UNI) Distinguished 'Missile' scientist and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Chief Controller of Research and Development, Dr Prahlada, today said the country received export orders for indigenously-developed missiles.

Speaking to newspersons here, Mr Prahlada said ''at present, few countries have asked for Akash, Nag and TAG Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

''We are ready to export the missiles any time. The Defence Ministry and the departments concerned have to give consent,'' he said.

The scientist said it would take at least two years to start missile exports to friendly countries.

The government was interested in starting missile exports as soon as possible, he said, adding it would be a major landmark for defence production which would not only create wealth but also help compete with other developed nations in upgrading the technology to suit the importers.
