India moves to cancel AW101 contract

31st October 2013 - 12:04 GMT | by Neelam Mathews in New Delhi


AgustaWestland has been issued a second and final ‘showcause’ notice by India to explain why action, including cancellation of the AW101 VVIP helicopter contract, should not be taken against them.

The company is accused of violating the terms of the pre-contract integrity pact for procurement of the now controversial 12 VVIP choppers for the Indian Air Force.

AgustaWestland has now been given 21 days to reply to the notice, Defence Minister A.K Antony said in New Delhi on 30 October.

On 15 February, the company was given seven days to respond to a formal showcause notice seeking contract cancellation.
