Regarded as the smallest and the lightest combat jet in the world, the indigenously-designed Tejas' way to induction into the Indian Air Force will be cleared after it gets initial operational clearance Friday. Officials said Defence Minister A.K. Antony will preside over the Centre for Military Airworthiness and Certification certifying the Light Combat Aircraft. The certification will pave the way for induction of "the fourth generation fighter jet" into the IAF.
