What makes Tejas a wholly indigenous fighter, or how? Tejas borrows its Delta-Winged design from F-16XL.

Tejas wing design is opposite of F16XLs design as shown in the Figure below. Tejas leading edge is low sweep, where as in XL its high sweep

LCA Tejas is not an whole indigenous design project, in fact, DRDO drawn help from abroad many times.
Also,the design of Tejas is called compound delta, while that of XL is called cranked arrow. Tejas has a compound delta wing design with a unique low sweep leading edge crank. This crank is different from that of XLs. Tejas crank is only visible in the side view.
