LCA Tejas  symbolizes the Nation’s journey towards self-sufficiency in defence manufacturing: RRM

By PIB Delhi

Raksha Rajya Mantri Shri Ajay Bhatt said that the LCA Tejas symbolizes India’s journey towards self-sufficiency in defence manufacturing. This programme has been a shining example of commitment to reducing the country’s dependency on foreign aircraft, and it serves as a beacon of hope for a self-reliant India. He was speaking at the handing over ceremony of the LCA Tejas Twin Seater to the Indian Air Force in Banglore on 04 October, 2023.

RRM further said that the LCA Tejas program has been an inspiring saga of relentless dedication and innovation. The inception of the LCA Tejas aircraft was rooted in the dream of equipping our Indian Air Force with world-class indigenous fighter aircraft. It was a dream that many believed was too ambitious at the beginning of the programme, but the men and women at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), DRDO Labs, CEMILAC, DGAQA, PSUs, IAF, and countless other institutions and individuals who contributed to this programme proved that nothing is impossible when the country’s interest comes first and all institutions come together for the completion of this important cause.
