From The Hindu,on the same issue of Arjun Mk II
The government has also given its nod to development of second generation of main battle tank ‘Arjun’ and ‘Akash’ surface-to-air missile by DRDO.

With Arjun’s performance in the comparative trials with Russian T-90 tanks coming in for praise and it proving itself to be a superior tank, the decision to go in for a second generation Arjun Mk-II tanks is only an indication that the Army would be inducting more of these tanks in the future.

Already, the Army has placed orders for 124 Arjun tanks of which about 50 tanks were finally handed over to it last year to form a regiment.

The IA must be involved in Mk II development at every stage so that we don't go through the same pain all over again.
