Officials said the test demonstrated the aircraft’s ability to halt at a short distance after landing on board an aircraft carrier.
The test was carried out at a shore-based test facility of the Indian Navy.
The naval version of the aircraft is in development stage.
The Indian Air Force has inducted a batch of Tejas aircraft.
Initially, an order was placed with the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited for 40 Tejas aircraft.
The event marks the start of a new era where multiple agencies have come together to achieve a common goal.
The test has put India on the world map as a nation with the capability to design a deck landing aircraft.
