There are "Conflicting statements about RLV test in 2019" as per yesterday's TOI news and this source.

We thought that the RLV test this year is going to be a orbital/ suborbital test that includes landing of the RLV on a runway. But now we learn that it could just be a drop test from a helicopter. A chopper will drop the RLV from a height of 3 Km, onboard computers and craft's flight controls will be tested as it should land smoothly on a runway near test location (as per "space officials" who gave this info).
