Antony to consult law ministry before decision on Agusta deal

It will take the law ministry’s advice before taking a final call on the deal, defence ministry officials said here. The ministry is now carefully going through the reply furnished by the firm before taking a final decision on the contract, which is most likely to be scrapped by defence minister AK Antony.

Antony has already stated that the firm has violated the contract and has even refused to be drawn in a legal battle with it saying there was ‘no question’ of the ministry getting into an arbitration process initiated by Agusta. After Agusta nominated former Supreme Court judge BN Srikrishna as arbitrator from its side, Antony had stated that there was no case for arbitration in the contract.
