Mr Shiv, it sure does not look good for the corrupt. This is one more massive scam. Why does the Indian media get excited after the event. Is it because they are also neck deep in the dirty business. HAL has proven itself in the light helicopter business over several decades. Instead of supporting HAL the IAF goons, media including you, crave for the foreign 'maal'. Tremendous pressure has been applied on HAL to deliver on timelines for only half the required helicopters. Why should India import equipment which can be made in India ?? There is no point crying… Read more »

No body is ever punished for corruption in India. But this time it is also compromise to national security as the name highest officer of IAF has been mentioned by the Italian authorities.
Kick-back money is the reason why government is not increasing the production capacities of DPSUs and units of OFB. It is a must to sell the shares of DPSUs in the market to make them more competetive. But government will not take this obvious decision.
India needs a total change in the governance quality.

Luck seems to be favoring us this time. Lots of Babus and army/air force corrupt officials now have to settle for less fancier stuff. Wives not happy for sure.

Politicians shall be at least and somehow barred from playing mischief in to the deals which are technologically superior and technically justified. Otherwise it will be a repeat of Bofors story every time and we will be short of the best of the guns for all the time to come and etc.

I am glad Eurocopter didn't waste their time extending their bid. This is just bad business practice, why request extension when you have little or no intention to buy a product. I am not suggesting that home grown products should not get a fair chance, but before making a decision to invite a bid, it is our responsibility to make sure that we really need to import and that what we can make locally is acceptable or not. Clearly the MOD failed and their failure lead to Eurocopter and Kamov spending their time and money coming up with a bid,… Read more »

I have the following observation on this report: The report says that in 2003, TEC shortlisted 3 heptrs and flight evaluations were conducted, in which EH-101 of M/s. Agusta Westland failed owing to non certification altitude of 6000 meters and the Russian Mi-172 could not comply with 7 mandatory ORs. Hence after flight evaluation, only EC-225 of M/s. Eurocopter was found suitable for acquisition. This amounted to what is termed a "resultant single-vendor" situation. However, the procurement was canceled on account of single vendor situation, and the ORs were re-drafted thereafter. The same situation was reached in 2008 when only… Read more »

The air chief leaves no room to show case his love for Pilatus Pc7.. can we ask him why did the IAF change the SQRs for the trainer aircraft and made it to suit PC7, relaxing 0/0 ejection, cockpit pressurisation, 0-99% percentile pilots , auto trim control device and 7 other parameters. Why was he in such a rush to buy 37 more before his retirement….If someone compares it is exactly the AW helicopter sequence….Wake up and smell some cofee before we have another disgraced service chief….Pilatus always knew that if the PC 21 which was compliant with all IAF… Read more »
