I think flight tests are going on. I read a news item a few weeks ago saying that some xyz number of flight tests has been reached with IIRC three prototypes. I think the IAF has actually placed an order for a certain number of IJTs - and HAL seems to have clamped down on news. I have read no report that the order was cancelled.
In addition to this I think HAL keeps spies to watch out for me the road next to the airport and all test flying is suspended when I am on the golf course - knowing that I will report anything that I see.
