Facing depleting air squadrons, the Indian Air Force (IAF) has agreed to induct as many as 324 HAL Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA).
This is new fact in view of the fact that the Indian Air Force is said to have maintained that the indigenously built fighter jets are not ready for combat.
As of now, the IAF has committed to buying 123 Tejas fighter jets at a cost of Rs 75,000 crore.
It need be recalled that back in December 2017, the IAF had placed orders for 83 Tejas Mark-1A Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) at a cost of Rs 50,025 crore.
It will help the IAF in combating the depleting strength of fighter jets in its squadron.
Currently, India has 31 squadrons of fighter jets.
By 2032, three more squadrons will retire.>
