Supreme Court Ruling Over Rafale Deal in October 2018: Details, Highlights

The Supreme Court on 10th October 2018, asked the Narendra Modi led government to provide details of the decision making process in the Rafale deal with France in a sealed cover by 29th October 2018.

The Supreme Court also added that it does not want any information on pricing and technical particulars.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph clarified that it did not want details of pricing and other such technicalities of the deal.

SC also ruled it was not issuing a formal notice to the Central Government as it has not considered the averments with regard to the allegations of corruption made in two PILs filed by two separate lawyers.

Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing on behalf of the Centre, claimed details on the Rafale deal cannot be shown to anybody in the interest of national security and other issues involved in the defence procurement process. 

Background

The Rafael deal is a defence agreement between the governments of India and France for the purchase of 36 Rafael fighter aircrafts in a fly-away condition as a part of the upgrading process of Indian Air Force equipment.
