Modi: Days of ‘Made in India’ passenger aircraft not far off: PM Modi in Karnataka | India News

SHIVAMOGGA/BELAGAVI: PM Narendra Modi on Monday said the days of ‘Made-in-India’ passenger aircraft were not far as the aviation market in India was expanding rapidly and the country would require thousands of aircraft and young people as a workforce to meet the passenger demand.
India is currently importing aircraft, but the day when ordinary Indians will fly in ‘Made-in-India’ passenger planes is not far off. Those wearing hawai chappals too should take a ‘hawai jahaj’, he said. “I’m seeing it happen with Indian aviation market’s rapid growth and improved connectivity,” Modi said, addressing a public rally after inaugurating the modern greenfield airport at Shivamogga, built at a cost of Rs 450 crore.
Lauding the Tata-owned carrier for the largest order for 470 aircraft with Airbus and Boeing, Modi said: “Before 2014, AI was often discussed for negative reasons, especially the domestic airline was often recognised for scams during the Congress rule.”
