Contract needs to be signed by this year and kaveri should be ready before the year 2019 begins. It should be able to produce 90-95 kn.
Immediately after this another new engine should be launched with the help of snecma focused on the next generation of engine, capable of delivering 110–120+ kn of power.
I understand IAF wants 110kns engines but we also know how they operate, we should go with nothing less than 125+ kn engine. It should have the capacity of upgrading and adding another 20-25% power.

IMHO, I think it would be wise to run two seperate programs on developing engines. With or without help, maybe one with France and the other with Russia.

Start giving more money to IIT's to develop next generation technologies especially in the field of metallurgy, self healing frames, radars and much more.
