Why don't they leave civilian aircraft for the private sector?

Just another way of burning the tax payers' money.

Stupid decision.

Why is the government spending so much on useless programs?

I'm sure these young bright engineers would definitely like to contribute for their country... provided they arent paid peanuts.

At equal(or even slightly lesser salaries) when compared to the MNCs who wouldnt want to work on cutting edge technological opportunities in Indian Defence.

coz the pvt sector hasnt built any!!...
of course..now the standard defence of profit-loss calculations , of how they know it..but dont feel like doing it may follow....

I wonder how many of the experts here will join???
But then they could be waiting for the pvt companies to start building instead........

A sensible decision to recruit from the open market. The usual DRDO exam is cumbersome and leaves ample scope for manipulation, favourtism, corruption, red tape.

Hope this leads to atleast a few good men being recruited to change the org from the inside.

A few good "men" @vinz?

Everyone who is so skeptic about the peanuts being paid should visit this page:

http://www.nal.res.in/ncad/recruitment.htm

excerpts:

Monthly remunerations listed below are on consolidated basis and will be fixed for individual cases based on qualification, relevance and length of experience. The appointment will be on a fixed duration contractual mode, initially for a period of one year.

o Entry level with experience up to 3 years : up to40,000
o With experience of 3 years and above :50,000 to1,00,000
o Experts :1,00,000 to1,50,000
o Specialists :1,50,000 to2,50,000

The qualification and experience prescribed does not automatically make candidates eligible to be called for interview. Based on academic performance, relevant work experience and other parameters in the bio-data submitted on-line, candidates will be shortlisted for interview. No travel reimbursement is admissible for candidates who are called to attend the interview at NCAD office in Bangalore.

I wish I had some aeronautical engineering background or any of the above mentioned skillsets. I would had jumped right in.

They haven't completed the Saras or the Tejas.

But they want to start new projects!

Complete the existing ones first.

Gawd ! please dont let DRDO anywhere near this project, give it to TATA, L&T , Relaince or just anybody else..please

This is an excellent opportunity for professionals who want to work on something substantial. It will be hard work, harder than anything they will get to do anywhere in the world, for now. As the many men and women who have written the world's finest control system that is now used in the LCA. i have many friends in the aerospace business who wouldn't mind becoming Indian citizens to work on a project like this.

Why not complete existing projects before starting new ones?

Some jingoistic morons will say "go for it" for every single thing, do they even realize that such an aircraft has no potential?

How are you going to compete with Boeing and Airbus?

Aircraft like the Tejas and the Saras can be shoved down the throat of the Indian Air Force, but what will you do with this?

Apart from the fact that they have no relevant R&D experience ...look at their best business investment=> A Raja!!!

Two companies which are suspected to be involved in the 2G scam!!

What are the chances that they will push a flawed a/c past certification with their clout???

That they dont mind bending rules (or was it changing the rules) to suit their business is obvious

Anonymous said...

Why is that pvt companies have never built one till now..but now that the govt plans to build one....they want the govt to fund their (non existent till date)plans ???

@Anon posting salary details..

soon you will see someone saying thats too much..they are trying to poach from the pvt sector
only pvt sector has the right to pay high salaries to employees...

I feel the government should limit itself to Defense technologies, a civilian airliner should not be a priority where millions still starve.

satbir said...

If they make this .. it will also help military. Just imagine the derivatives of this project as bombars, AWACS platform, Tanker.

@ Anon 130 AM

lack of funds is not why millions starve...the amount of tax write of every year is much much more than what it would take to feed every indian even by the most inclusive reports!!

We dont have a lack of money..we just need to get rid of the thinking that the cos have a first right to it

@anon@1:30am,

We can feed a lot more "starved" people by NOT having to ship loads of money overseas to boeing and airbus.

Stop blaming one department's ineffectiveness on to another.
