HAL plans to speed up LCA Tejas production from 2025 with the addition of 3rd unit at Nashik facility

As the delivery of Tejas Mk1 is nearing completion and the date of the beginning of Tejas Mk1A delivery coming close, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is preparing to speed up the LCA Tejas manufacturing from next year.

To this direct, HAL has recently inaugurated a new production facility in Nashik, to speed up the manufacturing capacity of the Light Combat Aircraft Tejas. HAL already has two manufacturing facilities of LCA Tejas in Bengaluru, with a combined capacity of 16 jets per year, the Nasik facility is expected to boost the production up to 24 jets annually.

Although, according to some sources, the newly inaugurated Nashik LCA Tejas manufacturing facility is not fully ready yet to start production of Tejas Mk1A jets right now. Setting up of necessary infrastructure and training of the personnel there is still underway. HAL has confirmed that the Nasik facility will have the potential to produce more than 8 jets, but this additional capacity requires additional orders of Tejas from the IAF.

Initially, the Nasik facility was built for the manufacturing of export oriented LCA Tejas, but no such order have been secured by HAL in recent times from overseas countries.

However, the IAF has already shown interest to order 50 more Mk1A jets as a follow on of already contracted 83, and this facility may be utilized for the production of these additional 50 jets. This deal may be signed around 2025-26, when the Nashik facility will officially start producing Mk1A jets.
