Rahul Gandhi: Before CAG report vs After CAG report

What does the CAG report say?

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report were submitted to the Rajya Sabha today. CAG report says compared to the 126-aircraft deal negotiated by the Congress-led government, India managed to save 17.08% money for the India Specific Enhancements in the new contract.

India had wanted 13 specific changes to the Rafale jet to make it more suited to the country’s defense parameters. The CAG report suggests that the cost of these upgrades is far cheaper now.

It does not include the controversial and key point of pricing as the Defence Ministry maintained that these details could not be revealed. The parts in the report referring to cost are redacted, which may provoke fresh opposition attacks.

Aspects of the deal that is more expensive include engineering support package and performance-based logistics.
