 The Defence Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee has expressed the hope that the Light Combat Aircraft ‘Tejas’ being developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), will be able to fulfill the requirements of our Armed Forces for achieving self-reliance in Defence technology.  
 
Addressing the meeting of the Parliamentary Consultative Committee for the Ministry of Defence here today Shri Mukherjee referred to the continuing intensive user trials of the LCA to meet quality parameters before induction into the Indian Air Force. He reiterated that that the objective of the ADA, the Defence Research and Development Organisation, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and other agencies involved in the LCA project is to achieve self-reliance for the defence forces. He assured the members that all efforts are being made for induction of the LCA ‘Tejas’ on the basis of the stringent user requirements projected by the Armed Forces.  
 
He however, made it clear that to maintain the high standards of Combat readiness of our defence forces the government will go for procurement of state-of-the-art weapons and equipment from the global market as and when considered necessary as per the security environment and threat perceptions for the country.  
 
The members of the committee were given a detailed multi-media presentation on the various projects at hand with the ADA, Bangalore, particularly the details of the LCA ‘Tejas’, being indigenously developed there. The committee was informed that the LCA prototype have already logged over 200 hours of flying in nearly 400 test flights and so far the results have been very satisfactory. There are a lot of spin-offs from this project for the Aeronautics industry in India in particular and the Indian industry in general.  
 
Members of the committee evinced keen interest in the ongoing trials of the LCA and asked several clarifications regarding operational trials of the aircraft, and the possibility of global marketing after meeting the requirements of Indian Air Force. The members appreciated the success of the LCA project so far and congratulated the team of defence experts involved in the same. They also suggested that urgent steps be taken for expediting user trials by Air Force facilitating early induction as well as an appropriate marketing strategy for the LCA for its export.  
 
The members who attended the committee meeting were Shri Milind Murli Deora, Shri Jyotiraditya M.Scindia, Shri Suresh Kalmadi, Shri Naveen Jindal, Shri Sanjay Dhotre, Shri Madhu Goud Yaskhi (All from Lok Sabha) and Dr. Karan Singh, Dr. Vijay Mallya, Shri Robert Kharshiing, Shri Santosh Bagrodia (All from Rajya Sabha).
