    This is setting a precedent. Companies who lose either file a court case or lobby through their government which results in the defence orders been kept on hold due to a court case or cancelled/called for re-trail.

    In the end it is our defence forces who are losing the most. Example being the north eastern airfield upgrade which went to the Tata's and contested by one of the losing European firms. They have filed a case which has resulted in order been put on hold!

    Pakistan does not need to create problem for my defence. With such a Minister of Defence, who is obsessed with have a "spotless shirt" in defence deals our nation is facing a major problem.

    Why doesn't MoD just tell these companies to stuff it (you know where) and it is India's decision that they order anti-aircrafts missiles from a bullock producing company or Raytheon.

    Request you put bring up this recent happenings, with any MoD/Ministers who may be interviewing next time.

    When even private companies have rules that their choice of euipment will be final and binding then why is that Govt entertaining such companies.

    I feel now Sikorsky want to sabotage the deal as bell did not so long ago.

    Didn't Anthony already say that the Sikorsky choppers were too expensive?, even though the defence forces liked them?

    Can't the government step in and have these cases ejected from the courts?

    In the interest of 'transparency', protests by all 'tenderer' are allowed. Be it Central or state government. I know that protests are the rule than the exception – something like the 'Shahrukh Khan-K-K-Kiran principle – if you cant be mine, you cant be anyone else's :)). So if its a small item such as pharmaceuticals or big items like machines or big ticket items like Sikorsky choppers, we will continue to see such protests. The GoI will dither, hem and haw and in some cases cancel the tender – and history will repeat itself 🙁
