Hindustan Aeronautics wins Rs1,090 crore deal for Indian Air Force

The company will supply the Indian Air Force with 14 new turboprop Do-228 aircraft

New Delhi: State-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has won a 1,090 crore deal to supply the Indian Air Force with 14 new turboprop Do-228 aircraft, the ministry of defence said on Thursday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government wants to modernize India’s Armed Forces by replacing ageing equipment with home-made hardware built by local and foreign companies, and cut back on what is the world’s largest import bill for arms.

HAL has so far manufactured 125 Do-228 transport planes the ministry of defence said in a statement.
