    After dragging it's foot for almost 8 years CBI is all set to close the case against the South African Arms major in a bribery case involving weapons supplied during the Kargil War.

    It also seems to be advocating closure of quite a few cases against Foreign manufacturers for want of evidence.

    Blacklist and 8 lost yrs later, CBI to close Denel case - Indian Express


    Now the question that needs to asked to the CBI and other Agencies is that in these cases, which have impacted several key acquisitions for the Armed Forces, why did it take 8 years to finally decide on a closure. These cases should have been fast tracked and closed in a 1-2 years at a maximum. Somebody has to take the blame for this dangerous game being played in the corridors of power.

    That's a welcome step.....why doesn't St. Anthony starts with putting his own house in order...by blacklisting all bureaucrats demanding bribes.

    CBI in India is used by the government and bureaucrats for every thing conceivable.....
    To scuttle, delay, dismay, frustrate, settle scores etc etc....

    Now there should be a consensus and a protocol to deal with such allegations in future cases.

    We have seen an extremely sensisitive Raksha Mantri who is ready to black list defence suppliers at the mere whiff of scandal and the ultimate sufferer are our forces.
    These firms should not be blacklisted till we get some concrete proof of the allegations. We are seeing an ongoing effort to scuttle the MMRCA deal and also the M777 deal with the US.

    We just end up being the laughing stock around the globe.

    Yes,CBI is seen as yet another hand to grease by Europe's top weapons manufacturers. That CBI should be a safeguard against corruption is a joke and would be funny if it was not because it harms India so much, both domestic and abroad.
    They behave like a big dumb dinosaur, so one can only hope it will soon become extinct..

    These days its the season of clean-chits by CBI. Don't know if to believe CBI or not, they are after all caged-parrot speaking their master's voice.

    Hope Bhim Project is put to fast track, with what ever we lean and what ever now Denel can provide with TATA.

    Let DRDO, OFB, Denel and TATA come together on this and make it super fast track. We need Bhim in thousands.

    Re: Denel of SA to get clean chit from CBI on Bribery Case after 8 yea

    THE Whole idea is that if a Foreign Company or an individual break Indian Laws then there must be prosecution but this exercise of immediately blacklisting the company and then after nearly a decade giving it a clean chit.

    Now for example the case of Bhim the whole exercise will start again. From RFP to trials to shortlisting to commercial negotiations and there is no guarantee that there will be allegations either in form of a letter or a planted news item and then the whole thing will grind to a halt.

    Ok, so green light for Bhim would be great!

    However this also paves the way for the G6 howitzer!

    If Bhim gets revived which I think there is no obstacles remain now and is well upto the Army requirements for SPGH, I will not be surprised if the tender gets cancelled again...

    This may be bad news for indigenous development as it clears the way for imports. Foreign companies have always dropped prices when technology in India almost reaches maturity - after which the rules say "Lowest bidder selected. Indian stuff is still under development and more costly. Bla bla bla" Unless we willingly put in the time and sweat we will alway get screwed by high tech+shrewd western businessmen making idiots out of our bean counting ignoramuses in government who know nothing about what is needed to be a great power. Begging for a UN seat does not cut it.
