Rs 2,101 Crore Spent On Development Of Indigenous Kaveri Engine: Here’s Why There’s Been A Delay

The project for development of Kaveri Engine was sanctioned in 1989 with probable date of completion of 1996, which was extended to 2009. Government has further approved its continuation within the cost ceiling.
