India to revive Kaveri project with Safran

India has finalized the consultancy agreement with French defence manufacturer Safran to help revive the Kaveri project. The deal cost around $2 Million. Apart from the initial consultancy fees, India may not need to spend on development as the French side has proposed to make the Kaveri flight-worthy within 18 months for integration into the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft by 2020. A detailed joint development plan will be drawn up that could use offset credits coming from the Rafale fighter jet deal.
