Government’s $15 billion Rafale deal faces delays: sources

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s plan to buy 126 fighter-jets from Dassault Aviation (AVMD.PA: Quote, Profile, Research) could be delayed as the two sides struggle to reach an agreement over the role of state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL), two sources familiar with the matter said.

India picked the Dassault-made Rafale jet for exclusive negotiations in January 2012 after a hotly contested bidding war with rival manufacturers, but it is still to finalise the $15 billion deal, one of the world’s largest defence import orders.
