Akash, Nag and Trishul Missiles To Be Completed By December 2007

The sanctioned cost for the development of Akash, Nag and Trishul Missiles, in 1983, was Rs. 142 crore and the same was enhanced to Rs. 1112 crore in 2006.

Initially, the Probable Date of Completion (PDC) was July 1995 which has been extended to December 2007. Delay is mainly due to extra time required to develop and realize the state-of-the-art technologies required for Akash, Nag and Trishul missile systems.

So far about 50 tests for Trishul missile and 40 each for Akash and Nag missile have been carried out proving various subsystems and integrated systems.
