Budget allocation for the armed forces falls under BJP government

https://m.timesofindia.com/business/...w/62541858.cms

Even though the government has yak yakked endlessly about support for the armed forces, it has failed where it matters most---budget allocation for the armed forces.

Re: Budget allocation for the armed forces falls under BJP government

So, a good part which used to be gone in corruption is being cut off.. what's wrong with that? You never mentioned any details.. like how much % down or how many thousands of crores?

Also, with a lot of "Make in India" working quite well, the costs have gone down.. your thread is as devoid of facts and perspective, as Toilet paper of India.

We were supposed to buy 126 rafale fighterjets at least. But number contracted is 36 only. Reason is poor budget allocation.

just 0.5% drop can't be the reason. In fact Modi govt has bargained better than previous govts. 126 to 36 was so India can look at make in india clause.. French will come around eventually.

Re: Budget allocation for the armed forces falls under BJP government

The toilet paper mentions that the dip is in percentage of defense as a part of overall budget and does not give the numbers. It compares with Congress 2004/5 budget.

bhau aise feku item dalega to kaisa baat karne ka?
from the same newspaper -
https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/61769792.cms


instead of 136 planes with transfer of technology at some point in the future (which had been a sticking point since years) modi govt got 36 Rafales in fly away condition as quickly as possible but then move on to transfer of technology - nothing to do with budget contraints (although a byproduct of this deal is we dont need the budget for entire 136 planes allocated at once!)

Copy/Paste -
7. When Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister in 2014, he inherited the vacuum in IAF's fighter capabilities. During his visit to France in 2015, India and France announced a government-to-government deal wherein the Government of India would acquire 36 Rafale jets in fly-away condition as quickly as possible. According to the joint statement issued then, the two countries agreed to "conclude an Inter-Governmental Agreement for supply of the aircraft on terms that would be better than conveyed by Dassault Aviation as part of a separate process underway; the delivery would be in time-frame that would be compatible with the operational requirement of IAF; and that the aircraft and associated systems and weapons would be delivered on the same configuration as had been tested and approved by Indian Air Force, and with a longer maintenance responsibility by France"

10. There was no agreement on the terms of Technology Transfer previously. What was on offer was just Licence Manufacturing technology. Under the current agreement, the 36 Rafale procurement offset proposal supports the 'Make In India' initiative of the Indian Government through Article 12 of the IGA. It states that the French Party will facilitate the implementation of 'Make In India' by the industrial supplier notably through offsets for 50% value of the supply protocol. The Offset proposal also includes provisions for transfer of sophisticated design technology which is meaningfully superior to the licence manufacturing on offer in the earlier 126 MMRCA nonstarter. These critical design technologies are presently under discussion between the two governments. The present IGA was signed purely between two sovereign governments and no private individual, firm or entity was involved in the process from the Indian side. The procurement process also does not involve any Indian private party
