CAG: NDA’s Rafale deal 2.86% cheaper, not 9% as claimed by govt

Just in: The CAG report on Capital Acquisitions in Indian Air Force has been tabled in Rajya Sabha, which includes the details of the Rafale deal.

India Today, which has accessed the report says, the CAG report says the flyaway price of the Rafale jets are the same as UPA and the NDA Rafale deal is 2.8 per cent cheaper and not 9 per cent cheaper as claimed by the Modi government.

The CAG report also says there were unnecessary India-specific enhancements made in the deal.

More details awaited.
