Also, a large number of such armor has also been supplied. Know how much this armor has and how it proves to be effective for our soldiers. 

Since this Kavach is based on the technology of the Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC), it is named 'Bhabha Kavach'. This bulletproof jacket is not only normal, but it has been claimed to be effective in stopping the bullets fired from the AK 47.
