Parliamentary standing committee on Defence (SCOD) that has tabled its report in the house said ” “considerable delay” in the supply of 40 LCA Tejas jets from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. “The government should consider buying state-of-the-art fifth generation fighter aircraft over the counter without losing time to keep the force in a comfortable position,”
SCOD is dominated by Parliamentarians from the rule part at the Centre that is led by PM Modi and such suggestions against the backdrop of the United States demonstrating its 5th gen F-35A fighter jet in India at Aero India 2023 could be a possible influence on their report.
India’s 5th generation AMCA program is yet to take off since it is still not been presented to the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) of the Government for a project grant of 15000 crores that has been sought by the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) for commissioning the project.
