A committee has been set up in India to verify the “unreasonable and unacceptable” price of AK-203 assault rifles

Publications appeared in the Indian press that “some difficulties” arose in the implementation of the contract for the purchase of one of the new series from Kalashnikov’s Kalashnikov assault rifles in India. We are talking about AK-203 assault rifles, some of which India purchases directly, and part (and the main) is being prepared to be assembled at its own enterprises under a Russian license.


In The Times of India, columnist Rajat Pandit claims that New Delhi has come up with an "overpriced price."

From an article by an Indian author:

The Department of Defense this month was forced to set up a costing committee due to the “unreasonable and unacceptable” price indicated by the joint Indian-Russian venture for the production of AK-203 assault rifles - new versions of the famous AK-47. Assault rifles must be assembled at the Corva plant in Uttar Pradesh.

The publication stated that Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh discussed “unresolved issues on the machine” during his visit to Russia, where he met with Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu and Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov.

From the article:

A five-person costing committee created by the Ministry of Defense on June 11 based on a special provision in the Procurement Procedure for Defense is called upon to set a “reasonable price” for the manufacture of a basic version of the machine with a 7,62x39 mm cartridge. The IRRPL joint venture was created in February 2019 between the Board of Directors of the Indian ammunition plant and the Russian company Rosonboronexport, as well as Kalashnikov. It will have to provide pricing information to the costing committee.

India ordered about 700 thousand AK-203 assault rifles. Now, according to the source, the Indian Ministry of Defense suddenly wanted to lower the initial cost of the contract. This is allegedly due to the fact that in 2020, as the Indian Ministry of Defense emphasizes, the situation in the world economy has changed significantly.

    No, well, I like gypsies. First, we conclude a contract, and then, retroactively, we start a conversation about reducing prices. Why, the reason is excellent, such as "everyone is feeling bad." And why won't they talk to the French about the prices of Rafal? There are certainly sky-high. laughing

      And when they allied, they also nursed them ...
      With the union there tractors and weapons, from there filthy cigarettes and crappy coffee. So nursed in full. Now, perhaps, they can send both with the return to them the technology of adjustable shells. In short, yes, no, went nafig !!!

      Why is it possible for Ukraine, Poland, Belarus to revise contracts for gas, oil, knocking out money through European courts and not India? But I dream of something else. You come to the store, buy the thing you like and then you go to court with a lawsuit about the price that the manufacturer and seller have inflated, and accordingly its multiple reduction. The court considers and decides in favor of the buyer, obliging the defendant to also compensate moral damage for the stress caused due to the purchase of goods with an overpriced price .. Alas ,. The law does not work towards the citizen, but this is a dream.

    They like the price from Russia and the machine itself, they don’t like the price announced by the joint venture with the participation of THEIR people. Ready-made machines are not expensive, expensive ones that are assembled in India - the snake itself has bitten its tail and now wonders if I’m deadly poisonous or will survive.

    Well done tricky indica!
    Got a license, built a factory at the expense of gullible and deaf .. hmm .. naive USand now they demand a "reduction" in the value of the contract, citing the fact that "the situation in the world economy has changed significantly." !
    I just don’t understand how the changed "situation in the world economy" influenced the production of automatic machines of Russian production?
    But I perfectly understand that, following the example of Ukraine, they quickly realized that Russia can be milked endlessly while the helm is at the helm, and its accomplices are rowing on oars ...

    And the “galley” meanwhile rushes forward, despite the reefs in front, and does not even think to turn off! And so that certainly someone by mistake didn’t turn away from the reefs ahead, the “helmsman” decided to amend the “ship charter” so that he, the helmsman, remained forever “at the helm” ...

    So we are driving now on all sails right on the reefs ... belay no recourse request sad
