Delay in Completion of Strategic Air Force Projects

Capital procurements for the Indian Air Force (IAF) are progressed as per the procedure and broad timelines stipulated in the Defence Procurement Procedure - 2011. The standard terms of procurement contracts contain provisions for levy of Liquidated Damages for delays in delivery. There have been delays in some cases which pertain mainly to indigenous Make and Design and Development projects. All projects are monitored at various levels at both Air Headquarters and the Ministry of Defence and appropriate steps are taken to expedite completion of the projects. Audit Para 2.7 (Inordinate delay in development of Air Bases) of Comptroller and Auditor General Report No. 16 of 2010-11 (Air Force and Navy) had made observations regarding delay in the establishment and activation of air bases at Phalodi and Thanjavur. The delay was due to various factors including change in plans necessitated due to operational requirements of the Indian Air Force, paucity of resources as well as changes in the geopolitical situation.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri Rasheed Masood in Rajya Sabha today.
