yes arjun is having logistics problem but it outclass T90 in many areas. Anyway mk2 is still in the cards I heard that it weighs up to 60tnNonetheless, no more Arjuns are going to be ordered over the existing 124... And frankly, nor should they be.
At this point we can build 100 mothafuging T-90s each year, and other than Rusky daddy's royalty money, 100% homebuilt. Compared to that, Arjun still has 50% imported content including an outdated fuel-guzzling powerpack. It made sense to get them in 2005-10... not anymore. Now only progress in tech made during its journey remains.
The way forward is 50t tanks based on T-90 and/or K-9 chasis with protection traded off for high mobility.
