“Under the ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’, India is looking forward to increase its defence manufacturing capabilities,” he said

He further said, “Tejas is not only indigenous it is also better than its foreign equivalents on several parameters and comparatively cheaper. Many countries have shown interest in Tejas. India will achieve the target of Rs 1.75 lakh crore in the field of defence manufacturing in (a) few years”

The second production line for LCA Tejas is spread over 35 acres and is all set to go.
