The Supreme Court today asked the Centre to place before it in a sealed cover within 10 days the pricing details of 36 Rafale fighter jets India is buying from France.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also said that details, including the steps in the decision making process for the procurement of jets, which could legitimately be brought into public domain, be made available to the parties who have filed petitions before it in the matter.

After the court dictated the order, Attorney General K K Venugopal told the bench that pricing details of these jets were not even shared with Parliament.

The bench, which also comprised Justices U U Lalit and K M Joseph, told the Attorney General that if the pricing detail was exclusive and it could not be shared with the court then the Centre should file an affidavit in this regard and say so.

The bench made it clear that at this stage, details which might be considered to be strategic and confidential by the government be placed before the court and might not be given to the advocates appearing for the petitioners. The bench has posted the matter for further hearing on November 14.
