Atmanirbhar Bharat


The state of the world today teaches us that (Atma Nirbhar Bharat) 'Self-reliant India' is the only path. It is said in our scripture
— Eshah Panthah. That is — self - sufficient India.
                                                                                                                                                    — Prime Minister Narendra Modi, PM

Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, which translates to 'self-reliant India' or 'self-sufficient India', is the vision of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi of making India " a bigger and more important part of the global economy " , pursuing policies that are efficient, competitive and resilient, and being self-sustaining and self-generating. Atmanirbhar Bharat does not mean " self-containment " , " isolating away from the world " or being " protectionist " . The first mention of this came in the form of the 'Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan' or 'Self-Reliant India Mission' during the announcement of India's COVID–19 pandemic related economic package on 12 May 2020. The five pillars of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ are stated as economy, infrastructure, technology-driven systems, vibrant demography and demand.

Being a technology intensive upstream E & P company, OIL India ltd needs a wide range of equipment, accessories, plant & machineries, spares & consumables both of indigenous and imported origin for carrying out drilling, production, transportation of crude oil and natural gas and other related activities.Most of the equipment used in oil and gas exploration and production activities are highly specialized, sophisticated and capital intensive and OIL procures these items through GTE(Global Tender Enquiry).Therefore, it is indeed a very challenging task for OIL to develop these goods, equipment, and software indigenously to avoid Global Tender Enquiry(GTE) and extend OIL's cooperation to the dream of the Nation to become self-reliant and self-sufficient.
