Ya'll Nibbiars The Extensive trials of ARJUN Mk1A over the new 70 ton trailer have also been conducted successfully. Next trials on the Varuna Scheduleds.

Is there a possibility that Indian Army will develop liking to it? They should in view of poor performance of T-90 in Ukraine.

The T-90 has been thoroughly abused by the Western analyst In the Ukraine war. May be the incompetent Russian had lost touch with real life battlefield or the West had better ATGMs which knocked the T-90 out in bundles? Truthfully it is highly mobile and missile firing tank which outclasses many other designs. But bad press gives the tank men inside the tank heading to the battle field a bit of a disadvantage. Brave men at the tip of the spear need all the high morale and better equipment. In case, if Arjun is better then use Arjun.

Who will convince the Indian Army trial and procurement jokers!

May be, may be not.
As we're also leaning towards the light tank concept, it can't be predicted what the next move would be with Arjun.
missile firing tank
Nope; it's been decades since Russians have lost this trick of launching missiles.

LAHAT can be launched from any tank currently in service; even 105mm recoilless rifles can fire LAHAT.
highly mobile
So are most of the modern tanks. Even 65t Merkavas can be highly mobile despite being a defensive tank.
outclasses many other designs
Only time and Oryx can answer this question
