The Engine Division of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) in Bangalore is in the lead to secure a contract for the local manufacturing, under license, of the General Electric F414 engine for the Tejas MkII program. This significant development comes as General Electric awaits final clearance from the Biden administration regarding the Transfer of Technology (ToT) for the engine, which includes clearance for the Core section of the engine to be transferred to India.

General Electric anticipates substantial orders for approximately 300 engine units solely from India for its Tejas MkII, TEDBF, and AMCA MkI fighter jet programs. Once the necessary clearances are obtained, the local manufacturing of the F414 engine by HAL’s Engine Division would not only strengthen the indigenous production capabilities but also contribute to India’s self-reliance in the defence sector.

The collaboration between HAL and General Electric holds great potential for enhancing the Tejas MkII program and other future fighter jet projects. The production of F414 engines locally would not only provide technical expertise but also create job opportunities and boost the overall aerospace industry in India.
