    This is a positive development. This is one of those projects in India which have piggybacked on the back of HAL Tejas program. However, there is a serious issue with HAL when it comes to delivering the project in time and within cost parameters.

    This has to change. The latest strike by HAL employees, the piling of projects due for submission and the pressure to save taxpayers’ fund only shows the major disconnect between the developer, the lack of skills of the management and the absolute non-involvement of Indian Air Force and Indian Navy in all of its projects. IAF keeps half-hearted interest in projects, appearing on the scene now and then while Navy passes by and outrightly rejects anything aerospace-related produced in India.

    India needs a body similar to DARPA, which can set innovation objectives for military aerospace and allow private and public companies to participate. This can only happen if IAF and Indian Navy are forced to participate in the projects for new product development.

    Both Navy and IAF behave like elected politicians instead of professional forces when it comes to supporting indigenous aerospace projects.
