Ordnance Factory Board

The Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) is a government agency involved in the research, development, production, testing, marketing and logistics of defence equipment. It comes under the aegis of the Department of Defence. It is India’s oldest organisation and the world’s largest government-operated production organisation.

The OFB will be dissolved and replaced by seven new defence public sector undertakings, which will oversee the 41 ordnance factories across the country. These PSUs will be fully owned by the Indian Government. The overall transformation is expected to be fully complete by the end of this year.
