  • The final deal for the joint development and production of a fifth generation fighter aircraft could be signed during Modi’s visit to Russia in November.
  • The agreement on the fighter aircraft has been stuck because of differences in the work share between Sukhoi and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL).
  • India plans to induct 144 fighters and the entire project is expected to cost over $30 billion.
  • The first batch of aircraft is expected to be handed over to the Russian Air Force in early 2017.
