    Many people don't realize that HAL is not necessary. And with Rafale MII, the vendor base will only increase giving the LSA more options.

    Eventually the vendors themselves will start building R&D facilities bypassing DRDO, NAL, HAL etc.

    But what about the scientific advisor to the RM. Isn't he a DRDO guy??

    He's the one who will get bypassed. RM relies on expert opinion. IAF and IN are also experts.

    This what the precise problem is, every route to DM passes thru either DRDO or the respective service. I went to DRDO in Jul 2015 and they were shocked to see the design.

    But the influence of the SA on the DM will play its part. He's the one who advices him on all the important issues relating to ongoing projects.
    Did you hear anything from the respective services?? Have no hopes from the IAF but IN must be interested in a such a project from there fellow aviator.

    Just one important question, even if DRDO didn't forward your design to the RM, isn't it possible you go for the prototype by yourself and instead of proposing the Design or the idea, present the Product and present the combination of the Package to the USER directly. Either way your plan is to export the items also, and if the product is compelling enough as per your claim, the RM and the govt. would be forced to either buy or take the pie from this profit and either case the profit earn would benifit the country directly or indirectly (Tax and Indigenous Aviation industry). You said there are people who are ready to finance you, then create a prototype and certify it from the international authority or CEMILAC whom the IAF/IN can't reject.

    I was sent to DRDO by DM and what I am doing now by approaching IN & IAF is also based on some advice which I have received from him. He wants it but can't move anything till some responsible agency of GOI supports it.

    Is it due to financial support needed or something else.

    Its called Congress Factor. No one in BJP wants to take any such decision which shows them as having supported/backed a project without the relevant agencies supporting it.

    If IN provides Acceptance of Necessity, the project will get the green light.

    Yes. That is correct. IN does not have to give AON. Just they moving it forward means the project is cleared under IDDM.

    Vstol Jockey; if PM or DM or anyone else take a decision without referring it to DRDO, he would be accused of corruption and violating the procedure. While in theory, government could take a decision going against expert advice, but it practically never does in case of technical matters.If DRDO objects to LSA, I do not think DM, or IAF, or IN could do anything about it.

    The new DPP-2016 has brought IN/IA/IAF at par with DRDO to move for the sanction of a project. DRDO is basically about home grown designs. Anyone can fall in that category as long as the design is Indian and manufactured in India. DRDO is no more the sole agency.
