Indian and Russia most likely are close to finalizing the deal for co-production of mid-range military helicopters as well as civilian aircraft. Both the sides are likely to discuss joint production of the MC-21 mid-range civilian aircraft, Sukhoi Superjet-100 and KA-226 helicopters that can be utilised for both military and civilian purposes. This step not only creates domestic jobs but also result in transfer of technology and self-sufficiency in the long run.
