CCS Clears 3rd Production line for speeding up production of Indigenous LCA TEJAS

CCS meet chaired by PM Narendra Modi cleared a proposal to ramp up the production of indigenously built LCA Tejas fighters. CCS meet was chaired yesterday by PM Modi and one of the crucial agenda was approval for HAL to set up third Tejas production line. 

HAL already has identified land near Nekkundi for setting up structural assembly hangar, process shop and sheet metal shop, among others.

 But CCS clearance will allow HAL to start the process of seeking various clearance and also prepare a report for capital expenditure required for the new facility.
Defence Analyst Ranesh Rajan speaking to informed that CCS Nod only means HAL Proposal has been approved and final clearance is still far away but still can be seen has positive progress and it is expected that in next few years a 3rd production line facility will be established to execute Indian air force orders placed for 83 Tejas MK1A .


  1. Since Tejas have come up with some stealth features, as the Chinese claimed, due to its small size and use of composite materials (small radar cross section), more the number in the IAF within a short time will give India the protection against Chinese J-20, the stealth fighter under development. So, the Third Production Line is a very welcome move and will help to fill up strategic gap of the IAF that is ramp up its fighter strength from present 33 squadron towards 42 squadron, the sanctioned strength required for a two-front war. Three cheers to Modi Model Modernization!
