The Indian MMRCA acquisition: The Comptroller and Auditor General’s report shows how the contest was rigged so that the Rafale would win

Removing the local manufacture clause eliminated the biggest roadblock to the agreement.

And it hiked the cost. Dassault should have been thrown out for daring to stand in the way after the RFP explicitly called for local manufacture.

Seriously, you have to be joking. The contest was rigged from the get-go, down to numbers and prices. Nothing you cite can be trusted.

The bugdet couldn’t support a larger number of aircraft.

Because Dassault and their Indian cronies artificially brought down the cost and increased it massively after selection to kill the contest.

Seriously, you're whitewashing criminal and highly unethical behaviour here.
