Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

IAF seeks additional funds for new equipment Seeking funds is one thing. Is the GoI going to release those funds? I don't think GoI can give Rs 80,000 crore a year to IAF for capital purchases, when our overall capital budget is Rs 1,03,000 crore (was Rs 93,000 last year). That's just unreasonable....
