Since there will be lot of noise on #AgustaWestland in the coming days here are some plain and simple facts -

- Proposal to dismantle ageing fleet of Mi-18 Helicopters for VVIP use was floated by IAF in 1999, When NDA Govt was at the centre led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

( 4 Companies responded to it, AgustaWestland was NOT one of them )

- In 2003 on the advice of Brajesh Mishra, PMO reduced the Requirements from 6000 Metres initially to 4500 metres...

...which allowed AgustaWestland to enter the bidding process.

- In 2006 after re-consultation with all the stakeholders involved in the process, UPA Government re-issued the RFP with minor tweaks (None of them major enough to favour any of the competing companies)
