IAF May Take Over Tejas Project From HAL Due To Delays


The Indian Air Force (IAF) may get the control of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas programme from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA).

The decision, likely to be made official by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) soon, is aimed at ending the blame game over the project delay, often being played out by the stake-holders of the flagship ‘Make in India’ project.

Military sources confirmed to Onmanorama that the idea of an IAF official being given the command and control of Tejas programme has been floating around for some time now. As per a proposal being mooted, the IAF might depute an officer of an Air Marshal rank to head the Tejas project.

The head of LCA Division, currently an officer at Executive Director level and Programme Director of ADA, an H-level scientist, may then report to him, if the plans take off smoothly. Read More
