Army Offices obliged by gifts by us arms companies

No case relating to Army officers being obliged by gifts from American companies, have been brought to the knowledge of the Government, in the recent past. Indian Armed Forces are governed by their respective Acts namely Army, Navy and Air Force Acts. Appropriate provisions are there in these Acts to take action against Force personnel indulging in corrupt practices. In addition, for all procurements/purchases/award of works well defined procedures with adequate checks and balances are followed. All procurement/purchase decisions/awards of works worth Rs. 75 crore and above are subjected to scrutiny/Special Audit by Comptroller & Auditor General and where necessary by Central Vigilance Commission. Further, in accordance with Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) 2008, signing of an “Integrity Pact” would be considered between government department and the bidder for schemes exceeding Rs. 100 crore. Wherever considered appropriate, cases are also referred to Central Bureau of Investigation.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in written reply to Shri Lalit Kishore Chaturvedi in Rajya Sabha today.
