Rafale deal signed by the Modi govt is Rs 60 crores cheaper per aircraft than the UPA deal: Reports

Fresh documents have emerged in the issue related to the Rafale deal that indicates that the UPA’s claims of a more expensive deal finalised by the NDA government are false. According to reports, documents show that the NDA deal has finalised the Rafale deal in which each aircraft has cost Rs 59 crores less than the UPA deal.

According to an India Today report, a document prepared by the Ministry of Defence and the Indian Air Force shows that the unit price per aircraft, after taking into account maintenance, weapon systems, stimulators, repair support and technical assistance will be Rs 1646 crores under the NDA government deal. The price under the UPA government deal would have been Rs 1705 crores.

The NDA government has negotiated the deal at Rs 59,000 crores for 35 Rafale jets while the UPA government had negotiated a deal of 1,72,185 crores for 126 Rafale jets without the additional features that the NDA government negotiated for.

According to Republic TV, the total savings is far more.

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had yesterday held a press conference where he had stated that the price of aircraft was 9% less than what was quoted in the 2011 deal.

Reports also state that under the NDA deal, Rafale has made certain ‘India-specific’ changes in the aircraft’s weapons system which were not a part of the original deal. The aircraft under the NDA deal will reportedly possess the METEOR and SCALP missile systems which were not a part of the original deal.

The Congress has long been alleging irregularities in the Rafale deal despite several clarifications by the government. Today the Congress has moved a privilege motion against PM Modi and Raksha Mantri Nirmala Sitharaman for the same. Congress President Rahul Gandhi had lied on the floor of the parliament when he claimed that French President Macron had told him that there is no confidentiality clause in the Rafale deal.
