  • The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed pleas seeking a review of its December order against investigating the Rafale deal, insisting it was “satisfied” with the material produced by the government to support the pricing of the fighter jets.

    Gandhi's remarks came after the Supreme Court gave clean chit to the Modi government on the purchase of 36 fully-loaded Rafale fighter jets from French company Dassault Aviation, rejecting the plea for registration of an FIR by the CBI for alleged commission of cognisable offence in the deal.

    Delivering its much-awaited ruling on the matter, SC today refused to review its earlier decision of giving a clean chit to the govt while rejecting pleas for registration of an FIR by the CBI for alleged irregularities in the deal. In its 2018 order, the SC had said that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the Rafale jets deal.

    SC today dismissed the review petitions against its verdict in the Rafale deal on grounds that they lacked merit, reiterating its clean chit to the Modi government in the fighter jet agreement. It also closed the contempt plea against Rahul Gandhi for wrongly attributing to the apex court his "chowkidar chor hai" remark in the Rafale case.

    After a 12-year long procurement process, India received first Rafale figher jet in a ceremony in France attended ​by Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. Indian government has released first tender in 2007.

    ICAO had recently asked India to make DGCA licensing authority for ATC officers. Earlier, Airports Authority of India (AAI), which is also ATC service provider, had been licensing ATCOs. DGCA will license all 2500 current ATCOs by December, according to a senior DGCA official.

    Tuesday’s ruling in US District Court came in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation on behalf of 11 travellers whose smartphones and laptops were searched without individualised suspicion at US ports of entry.

    The Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission (set up by his family members after his death) currently led by Jim McGovern (Democrat) and Chris Smith (Republican) have called for a hearing on November 14 to “examine the human rights situation in the former state of Jammu and Kashmir in India in historical and national context.”

    In a statement, the group said it still hopes to receive certification next month from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), allowing it to resume MAX deliveries to airline customers before the end of the year.

    On May 10, the apex court had reserved the decision on the pleas, including one filed by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie, and activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan, seeking a re-examination of its findings that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.
