BANGALORE: New divisions to boot, newer technologies to date and new planes to fly. The $10-billion MMRCA order bagged by Dassault Rafale has given Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) a lot to cheer. HAL’s Officiating chairman P V Deshmukh told Express on Wednesday that the announcement has given new hopes for the 33,000-plus strong workforce.

 HAL now hopes to clinch a business volume of about `20,000-25,000 crore from rolling out Rafales in the next 10 years. “These are rough estimates and a clear picture will only come when we see the fine-print, including ToT details. We will have to see the specific role that will be assigned to us,” Deshmukh said.

 HAL will roll out 108 aircraft under licence out of the 126, and 18 planes will be directly supplied.
