Rafale fighter plane deal in India
In the course of purchasing the much-awaited Rafale fighter aircraft from France, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that among all the procedures only the financial details needed had to be worked out.
Earlier today, Modi stated India’s intention to purchase 35 Rafale medium multi-role combat aircraft of French aerospace major Dassault during his visit Paris last year. The deal is expected to range around Rs 60000 crore.
“Only financial aspects of the Rafale deal are left. The inter-governmental agreement has been finalised. It will be done soon,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his statement after delegation level talks with French President Francois Hollande.
