Asks more questions than answers them. In any case good to read about indigenous design efforts. Whatever the process, the nation is already reaping the benefits in form of Rudra and LCH. Way to go.

Thanks for posting this Shiv.
Have had the good fortune to visit Helicopter Complex regularly for Force.
The Dhruv really is an outstanding effort and full marks to HAL for sticking it out and sorting out the issues.
Every pilot I have spoken to who has flown the Dhruv has nothing but praise for its performance.

I don't have any Authority and Proficiency in respective subject.

But as enthusiastic defence news reader/follower and as management student I would like to congratulate Gp. Capt. (Retd.) Hari Nair VM. on their balanced criticism of the Dhruv (ALH) programme.

This case study is very good example for the Project Management Practices.
Observations/outcome of the article is helpful in broad spectrum of industries for project management.

Excellent analysis! Other projects- LCA, Arjun/ FMBT- perhaps are also victims of "overstretch" and "moving goal posts" in design requirements. Absent experience, Staff Requirements ended up as "cut and paste wishlists", that allowed design consultants (MBB et al) to experiment on India's dime (or rupee). Hope hard won experience from the ALH saga can be applied across all projects. One can always wish, right?

Excellent analysis. but the fact remains that the project has not achieved its aim even todate. Can you tell us what is the serviceability rate across the customers? why the aircraft has not attracted any civilian buyers? What happened to certification by European and US agencies? If it has evolved as you say then why not go for global certification?

Dear Anonymous: Maybe for the same reason European and US agencies do not send their copters for Indian Certification ? What next, should the entire indian military be vetted by US/Europe ? I mean, how can we trust bloody indians to take care of India eh ? too bad the british left, the country is going to dogs….

This Article i think should be an eye opener for all those who criticize indigenous projects i know u feel they are just sitting and doing nothing but this article show the hard work that's done to realize a project when u r starting from scratch. I would say a balanced article praising what was good and criticizing what went wrong by Gp Capt (Retd) Hari Nair
