India Accelerates LCA Tejas Export Push
Light Combat Aircraft, Tejas

The Government of India proposes to export the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas to other countries.

In this connection preliminary discussions have been held with a few friendly countries. Presently, HAL has established facilities for manufacturing and delivery of 8 LCA per annum.

There is a plan to ramp up the production rate from 8 to 16 Aircraft per annum progressively by 2019-20, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said in the parliament Friday. 

India has cleared Rs 50,025 crore (US$7.5 billion) worth defense proposal to procure 83 LCA Tejas fighter jets earlier this month.

The LCA is the smallest and lightest super fighter and is designed and developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force and Navy.
