Compiled by @go4avinash

Read on ....
➡ IAF put the critical gap requirement at the time of Atal Bihari Vajpayee Govt. in 2001.

Govt quickly got it to action & started process. RFP was floated by NDA Government in 2004.
➡ Requirement of 126 Jets was took over by Congress after 2004 elections. Revised RFP was out in 2007 but bids were open in 2011. Even after 4 years of delay, deal was never finalised by Congress.
➡ Then Defence Minister 'A. K. Antony' Differed 'Rafale Deal' on budgetary constraints & informed in a Media Conference.

He said 'UPA don't have Money' & left 'Rafale' Deal for Next Government.
➡ Then 'MMRCA deal' was stalled due to disagreements over production in India.

'Dassault' refused to take responsibility for the 108 'HA'L-manufactured (read assembled).
➡ In 2011, Confidential File on 'MMRCA' Deal was found on road-Side in 'Delhi'.

This was the Seriousness of then 'UPA' Government.
➡ UPA tried to offer then 'Rafale Deal' to Sanjay Bhandari's company, A close Friend of 'Robert Vadra'. Why ?

➡ Dassault's "Rafale" Fighter Aircraft, was chosen through post evaluation in 'MMRCA' deal by UPA itself as L1 bidder in Feb'2012.
➡ In 2012, 'RelianceIndustries' was picked as OffsetPartner in 'MMRCA',
➡ Not Revealing Itemwise details of the 'Rafale'contract, the Govt is following in letter & spirit the confidentiality provisions of a bilateral India-France Agreement of 2008 signed by the previous Govt
➡ Congress continuously crying in public BUT Congress distances itself from the PIL submitted against 'Rafale Deal' in Supreme Court. Why ?
➡ Last yr in Sept'17 'RahulGandhi' along with 'Sam Pitroda' visited US. All the attacks on 'Rafale' deal started just after that! Why ?
➡ Congress tried to manufacture propaganda based on Media blogs published by 2 Bloggers (Mediapart) of France.

Ex-President of France 'Hollande' himself made clear that He was NOT aware of & He didn't gave any such Statement.
➡ Congress cites 2016 letter by MoD 'Babu' i.e . But The 'Babu' - 'Rajiv Verma (Joint Sec MoD)', refutes the allegation & has indicated that he was not punished by the Government.
➡ Present 'Rafale Deal' is Government to Government Deal.

No Mediator Involved. There is NO Possibility of Any SCAM.

French President also given statement on that. All 36 'Rafale' Aircrafts will come in Flyaway condition.
➡ Modi Governments 'RafaleDeal' is Much Better & Economical Than 'Egypt' (5.2 Bn Euro - 24 Jets) & 'Qatar' (6.3 Bn Euro - 24 Jets).No Offset Obligation & etc.
➡ Congress barked & tried to show that 2016 'Rafale Deal' was loss making. Fact remains 'Modi GoI' saved
12,600 Cr.
➡ Anil Ambani Slaps Rs 5,000 Crore Defamation Suit On Congress's National Herald for defaming th Group.

➡ 'Dassault Aviation' cleared that "French government is in no manner involved in the choice of Indian industrial partners".
'Dassault' has Freely chosen 'Reliance' as offset partner & made JV in Feb'2017 and informed too.

➡ 'Reliance' is not the only partner in this project. “Other partnerships have been signed with companies such as BTSL, DEFSYS, Kinetic, Mahindra, Maini and Samtel.
But then why Media and Congress is after Reliance only ? Hundred Indian companies and partnerships have already been concluded with about 30 of them.

So why this misinformation campaign ?!!!!!
➡ The joint-venture, Dassault Reliance Aerospace Ltd (DRAL), was created February 10, 2017.

This plant will manufacture parts for Falcon 2000 business jets and, in a second step, parts for Rafale aircraft later.
➡ 'Offset Obligation' in 59,000 cr 'Rafale Deal' doen't mean that India will first Pay that amount to 'Dassault' & then 'Dassault' will re-invest 30,000 from it.

Payment is done to 'France Government', not to 'Dassault'.

'Offset' is just an re-investment.
➡ JV with 'Reliance' will deliver about 10% of Offsets of 'Dassault' only. Signing an offset contract is a requirement of Indian law (Defence Procurement Procedure).

Statement issued by (Dassault Aviation CEO).
➡ Reliance Defence-Dassault will offer Rs 850cr worth of offsets in 51%-49% Ratio. On the allegation of offsets worth Rs 30,000 crore going 2 the Reliance Defence joint venture with Dassault,Trappier said no. is inaccurate. Dassault will invest only Rs 425 cr in JV in 4-5 Yrs
➡ Deputy Chief Air Marshal R. Nambiar cleared that There is nothing like Rs 30,000 crore to any one party.

'Dassault' alone has offsets to the tune of over Rs 6,500 crore only. Nothing more than that.
➡ NDA Government has also started hunting for 110 Fighter Jets.

Tender worth 15 Bn$ is Floated & RFPs have been invited.

Instead of 126 Jets as earlier, Modi government will purchase 146 Jets.
➡ Congress, approached 'CAG' and informed in Press conference, but CAG Officials didn't gave any Comment on their behalf.
➡ The Supreme Court on 14-Dec-2018 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.
➡ Supreme Court has rejected Demand to probe 'Rafale Deal'. SC clarified that it does not want information on 'Pricing and Technical particulars'. SC did not issue notice to the Centre.
➡ Revealed Rafale Papers stated that Cost Basic Aircraft in NDAs Rafale is 9% lower & overall 'RafaleDeal' is 20% cheaper.
➡ On 13-Feb-2019 CAG report on 'Rafale Deal' published &CAG found No Irregularity on Rafale Deal & found that Modi's Rafale deal is economical than UPA's
