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."
