    [CENTER][FONT=arial][SIZE=5]France sees Rafale India talks taking 6-9 months[/SIZE]

    Talks between France and India over the sale of 126 Rafale fighter jets should be wrapped up within six to nine months, French government spokeswoman Valerie Pecresse said on Wednesday.

    "We are hopeful that these exclusive talks will be concluded six to nine months from now," Pecresse told a briefing with reporters.

    President Nicolas Sarkozy has hailed India's decision this week to enter into exclusive talks with France's Dassault Aviation (AVMD.PA) in a $15 billion contest to supply India with warplanes, after past attempts to sell the Rafale abroad failed.

    but thats only 600 odd million $ extra.....if the govt can pay 2.3 billion $ for an obsolete Aircraft carrier,then whats so wrong in paying 600 million $ for one of the most advanced jets in the planet.

    [CENTER][FONT=arial][SIZE=5]Hard negotiations lie ahead for Dassault after Rafale's Indian selection [/SIZE]
    [/FONT]Flightglobal, Feb 1
    [/CENTER]
    [FONT=arial]
    With its attainment of "L1 vendor" status in India's medium multi-role combat aircraft (MMRCA) contest for 126 fighters, the Dassault Rafale is one step closer to securing its first overseas deal, but the road to a final agreement is still long.

    Dassault on 31 January confirmed that the Rafale had been selected ahead of the Eurofighter Typhoon. The Indian defence ministry, however, told Flightglobal that it has yet to make a formal announcement of the company's L1 status, and was uncertain about the timeframe for this. "Nothing is official yet," a defence ministry source said.

    Assuming the formal granting of L1 status, final negotiations between Dassault and the Indian government's Contract Negotiation Committee (CNC) could take between six months and one year, said an industry source familiar with Indian defence procurement policy.

    The process can be a tortuous one. According to defence ministry tender guidelines, a CNC should be comprised of individuals representing the stakeholders involved in an acquisition. In the case of MMRCA, the source believes the Indian air force, Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) and other key parties will be represented.

    The CNC will conduct a two-stage negotiation. The first will deal with details such as contract language and deliverables, and the second with pricing.

    On clearing the CNC, the contract will need the approval of the Defence Acquisition Council and India's finance ministry. Finally, the package will go before India's Cabinet Committee on Security, which will give the final sign-off.

    "The L1 price is not necessarily the price you will win with," said the source. "There will be multiple stakeholders involved in the decision and negotiations."

    Industry observers estimate the value of the MMRCA deal at between $10 billion and $20 billion - India's largest foreign arms purchase. Under the terms of the award, 18 aircraft will be delivered in a flyaway condition, with 108 to be built under licence by HAL.

    Although the Rafale has struggled in late-stage negotiations in Brazil and the United Arab Emirates, recent French wins on the subcontinent bode well for the successful conclusion of Dassault's MMRCA campaign
    .

    In July 2011, Dassault won a long-awaited $2.2 billion deal to upgrade the Indian air force's Mirage 2000H fighters to the 2000-9 standard. In early January, European firm MBDA confirmed a deal to equip the modified aircraft with Mica air-to-air missiles, although an official contract has yet to be signed.

    Well that's gratitude! We give India 1bn in aid, THEY snub the UK and give France a 13bn jet contract



    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]​and after reading the article and comments,tell me one good reason for Indian public to not dislike the British...

    this article not only shows that the British media is getting into new lows( after phone hacking scandal) but they are also indulging in promoting xenophobia.[/SIZE]

    Like the French never gave us aid. Or the Americans. Or Canadians, Germans and Russians. I am pretty sure, at one time or the other, even Mexicans have sent some sort of aid. So why are the British entitled to preferential treatment ?

    As Olybrius said, let's try to keep this thread for NEWS (good or bad, but preferably good) or informed/interesting discussion.

    To discuss this garbage article, somebody just open a thread about it:

    Yes but the Dailymail is a tabloid and don't have the same reputation to uphold.
