France: Dassault Aviation CEO Eric Trappier in an interview with the intelligence agency ANI has ruined the accusation of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, a former liar on details of the Dassault-Reliance (JV) Rafale Jet business. “I do not lie, the truth I said earlier, and the statements I made are true.
I have no reputation of lying in my post as CEO, you do not think, “he said

Rahul Gandhi at a press conference on November 2 claimed that Dassault had invested Rs 284 crore into a loss-making company backed by Anil Ambani, who was accustomed to buying land in Nagpur. “It is clear that the CEO is lying. If he gets involved, Modi will not survive.” Guaranteed, “added Gandhi.
When he spoke with the ANI news agency at the Dassault hangar at the Istres-Le Tube airfield, located north of the French city of Marseille, Dassault Trappier, managing director, said he had previous experience with the congress party and comments, sad.
We have long experience with the congress party. Our first deal was with India in 1953 with Nehru and other Prime Ministers. We are working with India. We do not work for any party. We deliver strategic products such as Indian Air Force (IAF) fighters and the Indian Government. That’s what’s most important, “Trappier said.
With further pressures on the ground that Dassault chose Reliance as an offset partner who had no experience of producing fighter aircraft, Trappier clarified that the money that had been invested in Reliance
directly, but in a joint venture (JV), which included Dassault. We’re not money in Reliance. Money goes to SE. I made my know-how for free how to make people. I have Dassault engineers and workers who have taken the lead in terms of the industrial part of this agreement. At the same time, I have an Indian company like Reliance who puts money into this joint venture because they want to develop their country. So the company will know how to make the aircraft, “Trappier added.
Over the next five years Rs 400 crore, “said Trappier
Trappier further clarified Dassault’s investments and added that Reliance would match the amount, as the shareholder model is 49% Dassault and 51% Reliance according to government standards.
“We have to put this company together for the Rs 800 crore as 50:50 For now we are working on a hangar and pay for employees and employees, we have already given Rs 40 crore to Rs 800 crore, which means Dassault will have over the next five years Rs 400 crore, “said Trappier.
He added that Dassault is seven years old to make an offset. “During the first three years, we are forced to say who we work with. We have already settled work and an agreement with 30 companies, representing 40% of the total compensation under the contract. Reliance is 10% out of 40, while the remaining 30% represents a direct agreement between these companies and Dassault, “said Trappier.
Regarding the question of prices, the CEO said current aircrafts are cheaper by 9%. “Price 36 was exactly the same when comparing with 18 aircraft, 36 is double 18, so when it comes to me, it should be double the price.
But because it was government to the government, there was some negotiation, I had to cut the price by 9%. The price for Rafale is cheaper than the 126th contract on expensive terms. “On the question of an initial agreement with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and subsequent disintegration of Indian PSU talks on Rafale’s production, Dassault’s CEO said that if the first bid 126 nozzles would not hesitate to work with HAL and Reliance led by Mukesh Ambani
It is because 126 did not go smoothly that the government of India had to change to urgently get 36 from France. And then I decided to continue and HAL even said in the last few days that they are not interested in being part of the offset. So it was done with my decision and Reliance’s decision to invest in a new private company, “added Trappier.
He added that Dassaul had previously been in discussions with several other offshore tie companies. “Of course we could go to Taty or other family groups, at which time Dassault’s decision was not granted, we were in 2011 and Tata also discussed with other flying companies because they have experience in large engineering facilities,” said Trappier.
Talking about aircraft, Dassault’s CEO explained that current aircraft would have all the necessary equipment, not weapons and missiles. “Weapons will be sent in different treaties, but a plane with all weapons will be sent,” he said.
