    Q.No 96-100: Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question. The DRDO was set up in 1958 as the fulcrum of India’s indigenous defence production. However, its performance, or the lack of it, must count as one of the biggest uninvestigated scandals of independent India. Among  its notable failures is the production of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA),which was commissioned over a decade ago but   ran years behind schedule with a cost overrun of over  Rs. 5,000 crore. The aircraft’s  Kaveri engine  was commissioned over two decades ago; it ran  over  15 years behind schedule with similarly high cost overruns. Other projects allocated to the DRDO, such as the Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) System, the naval version of the LCA,  the Long Range Surface to Air Missile (LRSAM), and the  Advanced Lightweight Torpedo (ALWT) have all missed deadlines by several years.The performance of our  public sector units handling defence has been equally scandalous. Hindustan Aeronautics  Ltd. (HAL) could not rectify simple design faults in the HPT-32 basic trainer aircraft, forcing the Indian Air Force (IAF)  to import propeller driven trainers. The Intermediate Jet Trainer (IJT) prototype is nowhere close to flying, and the Light  Combat Helicopter and the multi-purpose civilian aircraft, Saras, have forever been in the pipeline. Our ordnance factories are similarly languishing. The Nalanda ordnance factory, in collaboration with an Israeli company, is reportedly  only  a fourth complete. The commitment to indigenously supply 1,000 T-90S main battle tanks to the Indian Army could not be met because the project failed. Indian-made 125 mm smooth bore barrels for the T-72 tanks also reportedly failed because the barrels blew up during field trials
