The Ordnance Factory Board under the Ministry of Defence is ready to roll out modified tents in the form of low cost isolation units to check the Covid-19 pandemic. These tents are being assembled at Ordnance Factory Kanpur.
Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) is a defense contractor owned by the Indian government. OFB comprises forty-one ordnance factories.
Established in: 1712.
Government is planning to make it into Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSUs), which is 100 per cent Government owned. Corporatisation of OFB will bring OFB at par with other DPSUs of MoD and will provide operational freedom and flexibility to OFB which it presently lacks.
