Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) wants to reduce the manpower hours required for manufacturing Tejas Mark 2 fighter jets for which the company has started to look at more automation like scanning to avoid visual measurement of the airframe and automated hole drilling on assembly of the aircraft airframe that will also cut down the cost.

HAL will build a portion of the aircraft and will increase its supply chain for which it is working to outsource many components to Indian Private companies ,HAL is also looking at projection technology to reduce the time required to install fasteners in the aircraft thus reducing manpower hours required in checking blueprints.

Plans are being made to reduce the number of free delivery flights with stringent pre-flight ground checks so that the aircraft are delivered as soon as it is ready.

The Indian Air Force has committed to procure 108 Tejas Mark 2 aircraft from 2029 onwards but HAL is expecting an order for another 90 more jet in the second batch to replace the Mirage-2000, MiG-29 UPG and Jaguar strike aircraft from 2035.
