When we did Rafale deal, our Pseudo intellectual were telling us that how did 600 crore became a plane of 1500 Crore. They should be told or asked how a 175 Crore Tejas became a 600 Crore plane. This exactly happens when when the other thigs are added to package.

What I understood was second line was getting in place plus a private line was being explored that would allow production capacity of 16 planes per annum, thus 83planes should be completed in 5years
They're taking some serious export orders into consideration apparently... And limited series production MWF starting somewhere after 2025.

The Nashik division is being revamped exclusively to cater to the potential LCA export orders I was informed.
I hope that the revamp takes place in a realistic time frame. The idea of it being used purely for exports does not seem sensible to me. There may not be any export orders for years, if ever.

A better idea to me is to expand capacity to supply IAF. In the process Nashik division production would already be debugged should any export orders be forthcoming, meaning that the risk of severe delays in supplying export customers or quality issues would be greatly reduced.
