Delhi and Mumbai, two most populated cities of India, will be protected by the missile defense system, the Times of India reported on Sunday.

According to media, these two cities have been chosen by the Defense Research and Development Organization for deploying the first national Ballistic Missile Defense system. The detailed project should be submitted for final clearance to the Government Committee on Security.

The missile defense system that has been developed by the Indian specialists can intercept ballistic missiles with the range of up 2,000 km and in the future it will be upgraded to the range of up to 5,000 km.

After the missile defense system will be set up around Mumbai and Delhi, it will be deployed around other major cities of India.

In February 2012 India successfully tested an interceptor missile capable of destroying hostile ballistic missiles.
