ALH Dhruv Laid to Rest
Around 69% of the material used in manufacture of Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) is procured from foreign sources. In terms of number of components involved, around 90% of the components are made in India.

The development and production of ALH has benefited the country immensely by providing a versatile domestic helicopter and enhancing our knowledge base in designing, developing and manufacturing a rotary wing aircraft of this category.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju in a written reply to Shri T M Selvaganapathi in Rajya Sabha today.
