    Is the problem poor piloting or is there some shortfalls in operating the Dhruv.

    The design of the Dhruv has been in collaboration with Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB) of Germany.

    ALH seems to be too advance & too light to be operated by IF

    You hit the nail on the head. That my question too...which is this private consortium that has wet leased these choppers.
    What authority does Chidu have to ground aviation assets?

    excellent.

    bsf is so dear to govt that with 2 dhruv crashes they grounded the entire fleet and are looking for replacement too. where as iaf is losing migs continuously since 80s and still they are not grounded and their replacement is still to be thought of

    Dhruv is running good in IA as well as IAF..
    The problem is only BSF and CRPF, If you operate so little fleet so frequently it will start malfunction..

    Cheetah and Lancer are best for you, Single turbine less maintenance less complicated..
    I wonder how MI-17 will do, they need more maintenance..

    Even Army and Air Force Dhruv's are crashing there is something seriously wrong with this chopper:
    Even the mi8 which were produced in such large numbers (over 17,000) and with primitive technology, and inducted in so many armys havent had these many crashes

    Obviously you didn't care to read the content what you replied me, Let me reply you in your own post ..

    RED = Real fault
    BLUE = Pilot error & Bad weather
    GREEN = Lack of Maintenance..


    About Green = High sorties and less maintenance and Pilots didn't had training for Dhruv, BSF dont know really how to opearte these Choppers..

    ======================================================

    There are only two incident in span of 12 years of service ( 2005, 2010 ) HAL Dhruv had technical issues, Which is very good record compare to MI-8 / 17 or other helos in Indian armed forces, you can search that on web..
