Dude do you realise what you have stated....rather odd to say the least.
The capacity of an assembly line is one thing that it can produce X number each year but to say that even if you need say Three aircraft but you still need to make 12 sounds weird.
When you want to keep an assembly line occupied.. before its resources can be diverted to next the aircraft (in this case Tejas MK1) .. it does not matter if you give an order for 11 aircrafts or 12.

This order could have easily fulfilled by Russian at an even cheaper price than HAL..but the primary reason Indian government with HAL because they did not want the the Nasik assembly line to sit idle.

He is partially right, And wrong at the same time.

It is not required for the assembly line to be occupied for 12 months, It can be occupied for 3 months as well.

Although he was coming from nowhere but what he meant might be the operational expenses.
