    I do not know about the veracity of the claims made in the below article but it sure is interesting to know.

    Gist of the Translation:

    IAF brass has updated Defence Minister Arun Jaitley that unless the 126 Rafales are procured immediately, the IAF is going to lose it's muscle vis-a-vis Pakistan considerably. Jaitley asked them what was the total cost involved and they told him that it was around Rs.1 lakh crores for a period of 10 years. Jaitely responded favourably and immediately forwarded the file to the PMO for the final approval.
