According to a media report a few weeks ago, the Army had rejected the rifles for myriad reasons including their being too noisy and indiscreet for combat. The army stated that the rifle "requires comprehensive design analysis and improvement". Dr. U Mukherjee, the spokesperson of the gun manufacturer, told the media that a top Army General had fired the rifle and found it to work amazingly well. Since the Indian Army requires 1,85,000 Assault Rifles, the total value of the contract comes up to a massive Rs.1850 crores. Upon testing OFB's rifles, the Army had advised "complete redesigning of the magazine to make loading the rifle easier". There were also an "excessive number of faults and stoppages (during trials) to the extent of more than twenty times the maximum permissible standards," the army had stated.
