Issue: 12 / 2019

Raksha Rajya Mantri Shripad Naik in a written reply in the Lok Sabha on November 20, 2019 said that three Rafale fighter aircraft have been handed over to the IAF till date which are being used for training of IAF pilots and technicians in France. The Performance Audit Report of CAG on Capital Acquisition by the IAF presented in Parliament on February 13, 2019, has brought out that the entire package price of the 36 Rafale procurement is 2.86 per cent lower than the price of the deal for 126 Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA). The CAG report has also brought out that Non-Firm & Fixed (F&F) bid as done in the 36 Rafale IGA may be more advantageous than Firm & Fixed offer.
