    India’s indigenously developed, micro-light pilot-less target aircraft ‘Lakshya-1′ was successfully test flown from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur near here on Thursday.

    Lakshya-1, fitted with an advanced digitally controlled engine, was test flown from the launch complex-2 of the ITR at about 12.15 PM successfully, defence sources said.

    As far as I know it is already inducted....

    " Lakshya has been inducted into the Indian Air Force since 2000."

    These are further developmental tests.... And as pointed out by Saya, for Nirbhay CM development.
