    the Light Combat Aircraft Tejas,
    which was accorded the Initial
    Operational Clearance recently, he
    said the current efforts are pointed
    towards increasing the production rate
    to 16 aircraft per year. “It will be a
    reality by 2016 and we are confident of
    achieving the same. The Hindustan
    Aeronautics Ltd has set-up a state-of-
    the-art facility for the series
    production to ensure faster rate of
    production,” he said.
    According to him, the design phase for
    Tejas Mk-II programme has been
    completed, while the second prototype
    of naval LCA (NP2) is expected to fly
    before the end of the year. Saying that
    fund crunch has never been an issue
    for Indian R&D programmes,
    Tamilmani said: “Not a single project
    got delayed due to want of funds. With
    an increased allocation,we will be able
    to take up more programmes. It’s but
    natural that fund augmentation will
    definitely aid technology projects.”
