Day After Successful test flight, government clears procurement of 83 Tejas Jets of IAF

The Defence Ministry’s Defence Acquisition Council on Wednesday gave its green signal for the procurement of 83 indigenous Tejas fighter jets for Indian Air Force with more advanced configuration than the 40 currently on order.

“The Light Combat Aircraft Tejas indigenously-designed by Aircraft Development Agency (ADA) under the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is going to be the backbone of Indian Air Force in future,” a statement from the defence ministry said.

“While orders of 40 Tejas aircraft had been placed with HAL in initial configurations, the DAC paved the way for procurement of 83 of the more advanced Mk1A version of the aircraft from HAL by finalising the contractual and other issues” on Wednesday, the statement said.

At his annual press conference ahead of Indian Air Force day on 8 October, Indian air chief R.K.S. Bhadauria had said that the force would be looking to indigenous platforms like the Tejas and the advanced medium combat aircraft (AMCA) to meet the requirements of its squadron numbers as well as modernize its inventory with fourth generation plus and fifth generation aircraft.

According to the defence ministry statement, the Defence Acquisition Council also approved the acquisition of indigenous defence equipment for about ₹1,300 crore. The proposals were for procurement of aerial fuses and twin-dome simulators for Hawk Mk32 aircraft for the IAF, the statement said.

An order of 40 Tejas aircraft had been placed with the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd in initial configurations.
