PM Modi France Visit 2023 | India and France are working on a detailed roadmap for bilateral defence cooperation during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to Paris on July 13. The two countries are expected to sign a deal for the acquisition of 26 Rafale N aircraft worth around ₹90,000 crore, besides exploring industry-level engagement in multiple ways, such as a joint working group and a start-up corridor.
The defence procurement board (DPP), headed by Defence Secretary Giridhar Aramane, met on Monday and cleared the Rafale N deal for the Indian Navy. The DPP assists the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), headed by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, which gives the final mandatory nod for arms purchase agreements. The DAC, it is learned, is slated to meet on Wednesday to clear French deals after Singh returns from an official tour of Malaysia.
