Here’s why the first India-Singapore defense industry joint working group held last May didn’t include Singapore’s biggest defense company.
The Delhi High Court has dismissed the challenge filed by Israel Military Industries (IMI) to its blacklisting, saying there was no merit in its petition.
Blacklisting is the politician’s response to cop out of responsibility for ensuring a corruption free defense acquisition process, that serves no purpose for either the Indian armed forces or the taxpayer, and is effectively the application of rules that govern the PWD (Public Works Department).
“The hearing qua the issue of black-listing of the petitioner (Singapore Technologies Kinetics) was concluded on 18.05.2011. Despite this, we are still informed that the final order qua the issue of black-listing of the petitioner has still not been issued,” observed the Delhi High Court.
