I think, here the culprits are not only IA but also the private players. They will be protesting for a fairer RFP, bidding process and all. Even though one or other player is already associated with some DRDO program but still they want to maximize on profits. That's why you are seeing something like this.Wait wtf is this? So they are going to split this 350 odd requirement between ~60 for DRDO and 295 for some as yet unknown design from private players? What the hell are these guys smoking? Who will design an entirely new tank for less than 300 units? Why should DRDO invest all this for just 60 units?
Why not green light the DRDO design then outsource production to private players like with WhAP and DRDO?
The IA are some corrupt mfers, leaving the back door open to imports and foreign kickbacks as usual
