Looks like it. Fuselage is very LCA, it looks somewhat like they consulted with Dornier and Dassault on the wing and went with Dassault's wing over Dornier's.

The Indian government has
been seeking technical assistance
from American and
European manufacturers for
the LCA programme, and a
fierce competition has raged
among Lockheed, Grumman
and Northrop as well as
British Aerospace, MBB,
Dornier, and Dassault-
Breguet. Finally, Dassault-
Breguet was chosen for the
LCA programme and won a
$100 million technical cooperation
contract with
India's Aeronautical Development
Authority.

India plans to develop an indigenous
light combat aircraft (LCA) and has
received proposals from British Aerospace,
Dassault-Breguet, and MBB to assist in the
design and development of this 1990s
aircraft

So it is likely MBB or Dornier.

This link seems dead (got the message "Es ist ein interner Serverfehler aufgetreten.") or is it just my computer?

Had problems, too, until just now, when I could open that document.
Have attached it now, to prevent further problems.
