The government on Tuesday said the Law Ministry has made “certain observations” that will be “taken into account” while finalising the Inter-Governmental Agreement (IGA) on the Indo-French Rafale jets deal. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar told Parliament that a team has been constituted to negotiate the terms and conditions of the procurement of 36 jets and recommend a draft agreement.

The Indian Express had reported on March 14 that the Law Ministry had raised questions over key clauses of the under-consideration IGA, one of them being France’s liability in case of shortfall in implementation of the deal being heavily loaded in its favour.
