Rafael Agreement With France

Delivery of 36 Rafales began on July 27, 2020 with the first 5 Rafales [195] delivered by France to the Indian Air Force. [196] On November 4, 2020, a second batch of three Rafale aircraft arrived at Jamnagar Air Base in Gujarat after taking off from France without stopping. [197] The Indian Air Force is scheduled to host 16 combat aircraft by April. [198] Petitioners in the case of former Minister Yashwant Sinha, former journalist Arun Shourie and lawyer Prashant Bhushan, issued a statement to the press expressing “shock” and “disappointment” at the court`s decision to reject their petitions and stated that the verdict “did not take into account the documented facts and did not address their main request to find an investigation into the agreement to purchase the French warplanes.” [130] and added that “some of the facts mentioned in the Court`s decision are not only recorded in the minutes, but are patently false.” [130] While the trio asserted that “no part of the CAG report was presented to Parliament or made available to the public,” the trio accused the court of adopting a “conservative view of judicial review in defence corruption cases with senior officials.” [130] [131] The trio asserted that the judgment had been used as facts, government statements by sworn insurance and sealed coverage given to the court alone and not to petitioners, and that these objectively false statements were based on the government`s statements to the court under sealed coverage, showing inaccuracies related to a judgment based on unconfirmed statements. They called for “full disclosure of all facts” and “a full and independent investigation into the agreement.” [131] The agreement included a 50% “offset” clause, which inserts the parties to the agreement – first and foremost Dassault, Thales, Safran and MBDA – have forced to reinvest 50% of the market value (approximately 3.9 billion euros, or $30 trillion) in India, with 30% of the total (about 1.2 billion euros, or $9 trillion) earmarked for the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). [20] [23] Of these 50%, 74% (approximately EUR 2.9 billion, or USD 22,200 million) are expected to come from the purchase of goods and services in India, which should support the government`s efforts to promote Indian arms manufacturers. [24] India`s Air Force received five new Rafale fighter jets amid lingering border tensions with China. For displaying information collected by a series of sensors throughout the aircraft, the cockpit has a high-end holographic display system (HUD), two head-down flat screens (MFDs) and a collimated central screen.
