The decision to abandon the tender of 114 foreign jets in favour of Tejas is an excellent move. The Tejas is no longer an “LCA” in the MiG-21 category. When the Tejas Mk.2. or MWF is available, it’s incumbent to induct this as MRCA, rather than importing foreign jets.

Incremental upgrades to it’s avionics can be made as and when required. The Tejas will do far more for Indian aerospace industry than any license assembly ever will (even with so-called ToT).

This will also save us precious forex too, especially in these uncertain times of shifting power balances.
