FWIW at 16 LCA/year, India will have more production capacity than the Rafales (9 to 11/year)

So, HAL won't setup a new line without orders or investment, but it'll keep one idle in hope for more orders? That's tremendous waste of resources.
1350cr is for HAL before it moves a muscle but expects the private sector to cough up all investment to scale up production of their workshare.

The area in Google Maps shows open land unlike the highly crowded neighboring Marathahalli.
How they move Tejas across a very crowded Old Airport Road is another question, ofcourse.
My take as stated earlier was to finish Hawk assembly quickly, transfer jigs & other equipment for maintenance to the IAF 5 BRD at Sulur, Coimbatore already managing Jaguars and common Adour engines, and go full stream on the Tejas
