The Defence Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh has hailed HAL’s contribution in the nation building calling it as the backbone of the Indian Defence Forces. “While there is every reason to be happy about its performance especially in the last five years, the Company should prepare itself to take up the challenges in the emerging market.

The Minister inaugurated the program in the presence of HAL officers, employees, Kannada luminaries and others.
