British company will invest Rs 75 thousand crores to built the biggest defence centre in Ayodhya

As of December 11, 2023, reports from the media indicate that the prominent British firm Trafalgar Square Capital plans to establish defense manufacturing facilities in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. The company is set to make a substantial investment of Rs 75,000 crore for this initiative.

Five major multinational corporations have expressed their interest in the state under the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy. These companies comprise Taushan International Group from Hong Kong, RG Group, Austin Consulting Group, Cosis Group, Indo European Chamber of Small and Medium Enterprises, Trafalgar Square Capital Group from Britain, ABC Cleantech, and Unicorn Energy Germany.

Trafalgar Square from Britain has entered into agreements by signing five Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs), while Germany’s Unicorn Energy has signed two MoUs. The MoUs with Trafalgar Square involve the establishment of defense manufacturing units, with a committed investment of Rs 75,000 crore. This significant investment is anticipated to generate a minimum of 26,000 new employment opportunities.
