SC verdict on Rafale defence deal: What the court said  2 Months ago

Source:   Times Of India  

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Friday gave the Narendra Modi government a clean chit on the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets + from France and dismissed all the petitions seeking a direction to the CBI to register an FIR for alleged irregularities in the deal.

Here is a look at what the court said-

* There is no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the deal.

* There is a necessity to induct fourth and fifth generation fighter aircraft and the country cannot remain without these jets.

* Not the court's job to deal with the comparative details of the pricing when the need and quality of aircraft is not in doubt.

* No substantial matter to interfere with the issue of procurement, pricing and offset partner.

* No material to show that the deal is commercial favouritism.

* No wrongdoing in the selection of Indian offset partners by Dassault Aviation.

* Questions raised on Rafale deal only after ex-French President François Hollande came out with a statement, which can't be the basis of judicial review.

* The decision to procure 36 or 126 fighter jets lies with the government, can't compel the government.

* Nobody questioned procurement of jets when the deal was finalised in September 2016.

* Personal perception of people on the deal matters little but the judiciary has a very constrained jurisdiction in examining defence deals of this nature especially when nation's adversaries have inducted fourth and fifth generation fighter jets compared to none by India.
