Government approves Rafale fighter jets deal

New Delhi: The government on Wednesday approved the deal with France for purchase of 36 Rafale fighter jets.

Sources said that the deal was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Security that met earlier in the day.

The sources said the deal is likely to be signed on Friday in the presence of French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

According to sources, the deal will cost 7.87 billion euros, after tough negotiation from the Indian side which led to delay in finalisation of the deal, which includes weapons and spares apart from 36 jets in flyaway condition. This also includes air-to-air Meteor missiles.
