HAL, IAF decide to work on joint plans


BANGALORE (PTI): HAL has said the company and Indian Air Force (IAF) have decided to work on joint plans on various fronts for better understanding of issues so that both contribute effectively in India's defence preparedness.

This was decided in a meeting between the board and senior officials of HAL, and the top commanders of IAF at the conference held at Air Headquarters (Vayu Bhavan) in New Delhi on Friday, the company said.

"Hand-holding is important considering the challenges involved in manufacturing and operational fronts," Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha was quoted as saying by HAL in a release.

On his part, HAL Chairman, R K Tyagi, mooted the idea of putting up single group or team to deal with foreign OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) on all matters as these OEMs work with Air Force, Army, Navy and other multiple Government agencies.

"Normally these OEMs work with two or more agencies.

There is greater cohesion, understanding and mutual benefits when these OEMs are dealt from one platform," he said.
