Guys, have to echo SuryaG.
Its one thing to raise justified concerns, quite another to constantly diss the IA, even before the results are out about any actual malafide intent to delay induction.
Despite OFBs huge errors of commission and omission, IA has given them such a huge chance for the Dhanush and is well justified to protect its troops lives via extensive trials.
Just think, would you have wanted to be the soldier firing a weapon which has had barrel bursts and with OFBs prior issues with QC/QA. Now, by conducting these trials, the IA has done the RIGHT THING by ensuring product quality and I hope they continue to strictly monitor the OFB production.
Please extend them the courtesy of having thought things through and fixing things the right way.

Do you expect them to have a project manager send out race/gantt charts every week followed up with a report containing exec summar, highlight and lowlight. Forget about armed forces did GSTN company do that when it was rolling out the GST ? may be a bad example but hope you get the drift.
In the past, yes there were malicious attempts to derail indigenous systems but i believe this has changed considerably now, is it spit polish clean no it isnt but atleast they are on the right path. At the same time, there could be procedural delays when it comes to ordering these items, we should talk about that and see if we can suggest remedies or may be there are mindset problems but attributing everything to malice is not the right way to go.
