    oops sry....Mods please merge if required. Just felt this needs to be highlighted as we usually have a separate thread for any critical argument from so called experts of indigenous products.

    @Bhadra you beat me to it. On Saturday IE had this story on page 2

    MHA not happy with HAL-made choppers, wants more bidders - Indian Express

    As per the report BSF had a problem with the high maintenance of the Dhruv and in one case HAL took almost a year to make the repairs. This is a lacuna HAL has to solve. IA and IAF will have their own dedicated maintenance wing but for smaller operators who will have to depend on HAL for repairs and routine maintenance this can be a big put off.

    Its not wrong to blame BSF for such incompetence, Which resulted there officers lives..

    BSF is known to have airwing from fixed to MI-8, But Dhruvs were its backbone, knowing this all they should have put there own maintenance facility, now they are going for imports with kickbacks and the question will be there when these new birds will start to crash of same cause as he core issue is not solved yet, And media will give little or no importance to such news..

    Such incident is an excuse for imports..

    @Kunal Biswas, how many such birds would the BSF have to justify a maintenance wing set up exclusively for them. It is a bit harsh to ask the BSF to do this. The main reason for going for Dhruv was to minimise the expenses and the spares would be readily available. Sadly it seems that the HAL has let them down.

    Its a very obvious procedure for any force to set up maintenance facility for the bird which form there back bone in these operations, It very basic for any force in the world even for the infamous black water pvt mercenary org have such facility in house, I dont have to name IA here..

    In case of IA the stocks of spares are ordered from HAL in advance which are stored in IA facility, In time of high sorties like in 'Arunachal disaster relief campaign ' the Dhruvs were maintained smoothly so there operations were flawless, Unlike BSF have no plans such as these nor they have maintenance crew which work under there supervision nor have there own pilots..

    BSF faults are just too many to point out, despite knowing the danger they were operating Dhruves at high sorties level hen there numbers do not support such operations, HAL is a over tasked company and will not give full resources for just BSF when it have to take care all different birds of IAF zoo..

    BSF or anyone related or just know about such details, Will put criminal charges on BSF authorities responsible for such careless acts.
