good riddance. For a deal of $ 20billion the officer just demanded Rs.20,000. Normally in such scenario he should have demanded 1% if not 10%. It reminds me of the judgement where a traffic sergeant got 7 years rigorous imprisonment for taking a bribe of Rs.10.

How can the nation be safe in the hands of people with such low moral standards?? Even if the Chief of Air Force is found to be stealing then who can be trusted? It seems corruption is reaching epidemic proportions in our armed forces where there is no accountability wrt how immense funds are spend in the name of "national security". It's also amazing inspite of our forces having very rigorous selection process, it seems very incompetent and corrupt people are rising very fast whereas huge chunk of officers want early retirement. If these things are not addressed fast, our… Read more »

On one hand we have these kinds of disgraceful episodes by IAF officers and on the other hand we have a IAF Wing Commander who is fighting to get compensation after breaking his back flying shoddy Mig-21s produced by the government farce called HAL. Complete and total neglect in the civilian leadership of the armed forces and inability of the paper pushers and the political crooks to recognize the sacrifice of military service is eroding discipline and morale like never before. It comical and absurd that in more than 65 years of independence we have rarely had any ex-military officers… Read more »

Now the deal has increased from 10.6 billion to 22 plus billion and needless to say a huge payment is going to be made to few people in their carribean bank accounts , they need to be careful as Dassault may expose them easily the way they got rid of thakur who got a token bakshish considering the total amount of the deal.Twenty grand rupees is a very insignificant amount and I feel by doing such stupid thing by Dassault as well as by the officer , rafale is out of the MMRCA race.

Now I know why indigenous products are not given preference in India. A national shame.

In the news the crux of the matter is lost….why is the armed forces going the way the Indian civilian society at large has gone…The reason is that the magnificent IAS and the brain dead MoD continue to push and thrust policies that make the armed forces on lines with the police force..a profession that is not conducive for a professional to join. The degrading pay scales, the unethical and morally corrupt formula to continously deny the armed forces their dues including OROP even though India's supreme court has ruled in favor of the veterans. The sadist idea of waiting… Read more »

This is nothing when compared to scam Ardash building scam where 2 former Army Cheif's and 1 Naval Chief squeezed their way into the allotment.

That having said, there is a certain ground reality that we have to expect, and that is that this does happen in our Armed Forces too.

But the fact of the matter remains that our Armed Forces still hold high ethos on values and honour. There will be the ocassional defaultors.

To end, the MoD please get the 126 MMCRA signed and dustesd with. We are all fustrated.

You speak highly of moral standards, yet a huge portion of your population lives under poverty and archaic rules. Bribary follows naturally.
