Rafale Contract Allegations Are Unfounded, Says Reliance Defence President Rajesh K Dhingra


Rajesh K Dhingra, president, Reliance Defence & Aerospace, defends his company on the Rafale controversy after Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s charges of nepotism.

In an interaction with Manu Pubby, he details what the Dassault Reliance Aerospace (DRAL) JV will produce, how offsets for the Rafale deal will be rolled out and how focus is on Falcon executive jet and not the fighter aircraft.

Congress says Reliance Defence has benefitted from a Rs 30,000-crore contract from the defence ministry (MoD), related to offsets for 36 Rafale aircraft…

Reliance Defence or any other Reliance company has not received any contract from the MoD till date related to 36 Rafale aircraft.

This is absolutely unfounded. It will be good to understand that as per the defence procurement policy, the foreign vendor has a choice to submit the details of its offset partners at the time of claiming offset credits. Read More
