CAG Report on Rafale deal tabled- Modi’s deal cheaper by 2.86% than UPA

While the CAG report is around 140 pages long, around 30 are focused on the Rafale deal.

The report looks at 11 deals (five from the UPA era and six from the NDA era) — all of which were signed between 2012 and 2017.

Prices had been redacted only in the Rafale report, media reports add.

India managed to save 17.08 percent money for the India Specific Enhancements in the 36 Rafale aircraft contract, as compared to the 126 aircraft deal proposed earlier, according to the CAG report.

Union Minister Arun Jaitley has reacted to the CAG report that mentions the Rafale deal

Jaitley has said in a series of tweets: “Satyameva Jayate – the truth shall prevail. The CAG Report on Rafale reaffirms the dictum. 2016 vs. 2007 terms – Lower price, faster delivery, better maintenance, lower escalation. It cannot be that the Supreme Court is wrong, the CAG is wrong and only the dynast is right. How does democracy punish those who consistently lied to the nation? The lies of ‘Mahajhootbandhan’ stand exposed by the CAG Report.”
