Defence purchases and the annual budgets for the same run into tens of thousands of crores. Due to the high amount spent on defence purchases and often, also to certain extent due to the secrecy surrounding the same, over the years, there have been repeated allegations of corruption and malpractice. Though there are certain procedures in place to avoid malpractice, there is a widespread opinion that procedures alone will not do, but instead there must be a strong law enacted specially to prevent corruption in defence purchases. What do you think

“Justifications”


Do you believe that procedures alone will not do and a strong law must also, now be enacted specifically to prevent corruption in defence purchases.

    I have my doubt how much a Service Officer can gain from any such foreign deal since they look after technical & operational aspect only.

    Earlier too there was Bofors and now helicopters. The defense dept feels that they are above law. Hence they should be put to place by a strong law.
