Defence Ministry to Cancel Order for Tatra Truck
The Defence Ministry will cancel the BEML order, worth over Rs 50 lakh, given to UK-based Tatra Sipox for supplying one truck, in the wake of the CBI probe into the allegations of irregularities in the supply of these vehicles. The order for the truck was placed by BEML in may for the defence research and development organisation. The Ministry is planing to cancel the order worth over Rs 50 lakh placed by BEML with the UK-based Tatra Sipox, sources told PTI here. When asked about the development, Defence Ministry's Department of Defence Production refused to comment on it. BEML had written a letter to Tatra Sipox in May this year seeking urgent delivery of a Tatra truck for around Euro 88,000 (over Rs 50 lakh).
BEML’s Contract for Wheeled Guns Suspended Due to Tatra-Sipox’s Involvement
Following the scams and irregularities revolving around the UK-based firm Tatra Sipox, the Indian Defence Mnistry has rejected the proposal by state-run Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML) to develop a wheeled artillery gun in collaboration with a Slovakian firm called DMD Group. Defence Ministry has stated that the suspension is due to the involvement of Tatra Sipox whose owners are currently being investigated for a Defence scam.
Defence Minister Faces Heat from Opposition, Assures Speedy Procurements and Transparency
The Indian Defence Minister A K Antony has come in the line of fire as Opposition members in the Parliament blamed him for not focusing on India’s military preparedness which has been compromised due to slow pace in modernisation. However, Defence Minister AK Antony has stated that despite deficiencies in certain areas, the armed forces of the country are equipped to meet any challenges. Defence Minister AK Antony has also denied allegations of corruption in the purchase of Tatra trucks.
