The problem of the company's employees has increased due to the absence of work from the country's leading defense company HAL. HAL has consistently been in the spotlight for the last few days regarding the Raphael deal. On behalf of the opposition, the government was charged that in the Rafael deal, a private company has been given special attention to HAL. Dismissing all the allegations, the Central Government said that the government had no role in selecting a partner in connection with the offset or export of Dault Aviation.
Now another sensational information has come out about the Indian company. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), one of the largest defense companies in the public sector, is no longer a special task, because it lacks work. Due to this the thousands of employees of the company have been scared of seating for months without work. For years, in the area of air security, India's military strength is likely to have a negative effect on the morale of this company.
Let's say HAL has around 29,000 employees working across the country, including 9000 engineers. All these employees are working in nine places of the country - Bengaluru, Nasik (Maharashtra), Lucknow, Kanpur, Kokha (UP) Barrackpore (West Bengal, Hyderabad and Kasargod, Kerala) and 10 thousand employees are working in Bangalore and Nashik. Apart from this, a new helicopter complex in Tumakuru is still under construction, and some employees of this complex will be sent there too. There is no work left for the 3,000 employees of the Aircraft division located in. The work of upgradation of Jaguar and Mirage has been completed, so these employees expect them to be shifted to the Light Combat Aircraft Tejas Division, where about 2 thousand Employees are working.
A senior HAL official told that we were expecting a deal for the 108 Rafael planes. Preparations were also made for this. But the deal was only for 36 aircraft and that too for the fully equipped aircraft, so there was no hope for it now. HAL is required to get an order of 83 additional Tejas aircraft. If it does not happen, then employees may have to sit without work. According to the report, the Defense Acquisition Council (DAC) has approved 83 Tejas fighters. But it is yet to be transformed from the airport into the real order.
