  • The Narendra Modi-led Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) Wednesday cleared the much awaited Rs 37,000-crore deal for 83 Tejas Mark 1A.
  • The first flight of the Tejas Mark 1A will take place by the end of 2022 and the first squadron would be completed by 2024.
  • It was in March 2020 that the defence ministry had cleared the deal for a surprisingly low amount of Rs 37,000 crore as against the original value of the deal.
