China in March 2012 announced that it will increase defence spending by 11.2% in 2012, for the first time taking its annual military expenditure beyond $100 billion to nearly $106.41 billion as it puts in place plans to modernise its Army against the backdrop of an uncertain regional environment . China's spending in 2012 will exceed what India 2011 year spent by 3 times — India's defence expenditure was reported at $36 billion in the 2011-12 budget. This year India’s Military spending has gone up by 17% to nearly $40 billion in the Union Budget 2012-13.
