DE­VI­OUS DE­VI­A­TIONS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

For­mer air chief S.P. Tyagi has been in­dicted for mak­ing de­vi­a­tions in spec­i­fi­ca­tions that helped Agus­taWest­land bag the VVIP chop­per con­tract in 2010. But there are other high-pro­file de­fence con­tracts in the pipe­line where de­vi­a­tions in tri­als and spec­i­fi­ca­tions have taken place. These in­clude govern­ment-to-govern­ment deals for chop­pers and two mis­sile con­tracts. All are po­ten­tial time bombs, un­less de­fence min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar can in­ter­vene.
