Supreme Court directs Centre to file affidavit stating price of Rafale jets cannot be disclosed


The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Centre to file an affidavit within 10 days that the price of Rafale jets is exclusive and cannot be shared with the court.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices U U Lalit and K M Joseph also asked the Centre to share information which can be brought in the public domain with the petitioners. The next date of hearing is on November 14.

Hearing a bunch of public interest litigations (PILs), the Bench directed that the government must share with the petitioners the details that it has furnished before the court, relating to the decision-making process leading to the purchase of the jets.
