Indian Security Forces Given Substandard Night Vision Device

Indian Security Forces bought 5,000 pieces of Night Vision Devices and guess what most of them are so bad that they cannot be used. The whole lot has been sourced from grey market and are substandard. Proper procedures laid out for testing before awarding the contract were not followed and at the end of it all, the security forces do not have any reliable Night Vision Devices. Worst part of the story is that these devices have been bought from Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), a prestigious public sector undertaking.
