The Indian Government on Wednesday cleared indigenous defence deal worth Rs 48,000 crores to strengthen Indian Air Force's fleet of LCA-Tejas fighter jets, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Wednesday.
This will be the biggest deal ever in the indigenous military aviation sector.
Defence Minister of India Rajnath Singh confirmed the development that the Indian Government have approved the largest indigenous defence procurement deal worth about Rs 48,000 crore to strengthen IAF's fleet of homegrown fighter jet 'LCA-Tejas'. This deal will be a game-changer for self-reliance in Indian defence manufacturing.
While the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is conducting training for its soldiers at Depsang Plains along the LAC in Ladakh, satellite images show. China has also released a video of its troops undergoing training in Depsang.
Satellite images of the areas where this activity has been recorded put the units roughly 36 km east of DBO airstrip.” The Indian Air Forces’ Daulat Beg Oldie airstrip in Ladakh is the world’s highest airstrip.
The defence of India minister said Tejas is going to be the backbone of the fighter fleet of the Indian Air Force in years to come.
Around three years back, the IAF had issued an initial tender for procurement of 83 Tejas aircraft, a 4+ generation combat jet.
LCA Tejas incorporates a large number of new technologies many of which were never attempted in India. The indigenous content of LCA-Tejas is 50 per cent in Mk1A variant which will be enhanced to 60 per cent,' Singh said.
The defence minister said that aircraft maker Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has already set up second-line manufacturing facilities at its Nasik and Bengaluru divisions.
"Equipped with the augmented infrastructure the HAL will steer LCA-Mk1A production for timely deliveries to the IAF," he said.
Singh said the Tejas programme would act as a catalyst for transforming the Indian aerospace manufacturing ecosystem into a vibrant, self-sustaining one.
Meanwhile, Indian Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane refuted claims about the reduction of troops on either side as far as the friction points are concerned.
He said PLA troops come to traditional training areas every year and leave the place after the training gets over. He also said there has been no change in the status quo and that China has developed infrastructure in central and eastern sectors.
In a new US declassified document says, India remains preeminent in South Asia and takes the leading role in maintaining Indian Ocean security, increases engagement with Southeast Asia, and expands its economic, defence and diplomatic cooperation with other US allies and partners in the region.
"A strong India, in cooperation with like-minded countries, would act as a counterbalance to China," the document said.
The US and its partners on every continent are resistant to Chinese activities aimed at undermining their sovereignty, including through covert or coercive influence, it said.
