"Procurement orders by the MoD through Government e-Market (GeM) portal have reached an all-time high of Rs 15,047.98 crore for the financial year 2021-22," the ministry said in a statement. The GeM was started in August 2016 to revamp the old tender process and bring greater probity and transparency in government procurement through digitisation.

In a short span since its inception, the defence ministry has embraced the digital drive and embarked on this path with absolute resoluteness, the ministry said. "Despite multiple challenges on the ground, the results have been astounding," the ministry noted.

"The MoD is committed to contributing significantly to the Government's vision of promoting digitisation and transparency in consonance with Digital India," it said. PTI
