Dear Dr Saraswat Ji Good Morning
After Pokhran DRDO encased the US sanction. For each and every project activity requirements were raised to purchase systems/sub systems/ test & measurement instruments/ components from the European states/countries of Soviet Union Russia, Ukraine, Belarus etc. were identified as source of suppliers and with the blessing of then SA to RM, every month more than 200 scientists visited the institutes, universities, agencies and small venders to purchase the required items. In every movement explanation were given that project will be held if Russian market were not explored as US & Japan had imposed sanction.
In DEAL, Dehradun Dr AS Bains was then director. He also did some adventurous purchases with the help of his courtier Capt. P.K.Shukla (presently director management services,DRDO), Col J.K.Sharma(now retd),Sh K Siva Kumat(now Sc’G’,DEAL), Sh RP Dixit(now Sc’G’DEAL), Sh Ashok Kumar(now Sc’G’DEAL), Sh Hemant Gupta(now Sc’F’& HMM, DEAL) under Focal Plane Array project (knowing full well the limitation of millimeter wave less than 100 meter range), 99% of components/subsystems/system and test measurement instruments were procured from Belarus/ Ukraine & European countries.
In one of the procurement case of 94 GHz Network Analyzer, along with three scientist Dr.Bains visited the institute of Belarus and selected above network analyzer for FPA project. The item received by DEAL was not the item available off the shelf, instead it was a prototype model developed by a post graduate student for his assignment.
The item was inspected & found OK, clearance was given for final payment(1 corer+). But the system was not working properly and when the expert open the system presuming that may be the fuse was gone he found a Plier holding the connector from inside. The system off course did not work but the Plier given opportunity to Sh Hemant Gupta (presently HMM in DEAL) to carry it personally to Belarus to hand over to the institute.
“How IMC, Israel was loser”
In DEAL Dr AS Bains at the helm of affairs looking for a antenna for portable satellite terminal. International market was searched and IMC, Israel product found suitable, Dr Bains & Col JK Sharma were visited Israel to convince the IMC that there will be bulk requirement of antennas for Indian defence services the price negotiation was done. IMC Israel agreed to deliver the antenna for Rupees 20000+ each as the product value in the international market was in the similar range. Col Sharma sat with the IMC and convinced them to quote at 1.5 lakh per antenna with the engineering that the specs will be changed to show the customization and DEAL will procured same as propriety basis. And the excess amount should be deposit by IMC to Dr.Bain’s UK account (Dr.As Bains is UK citizen and presently he is in UK after retirement). The deal was finalized and IMC, Israel supplied the antennas by compromising the ethics of business. The company also received the repeat order, however at the third time due to excess corrupt practice of Dr.Bains DRDO denied for proprietary procurement. And Global tender was raised for the same antenna with same specs. But this time a local firm from Dehradun was L-1 with Rupees 32000+. Since the IMC did not qualify so the tender was cancelled by Dr.Bains. Again with some fake and some European companies address the file was raised with limited tender. But this time again one UK company was L-1 with Rs 42000 and Dr.Bains had no choice left and order was given to UK firm.
Finally the IMC Israel was looser as the firm come in the trap of DRDO’s corrupt officials’.
Now you are requested to open your eyes & ear. DEAL have same set of people well trained by Dr.Bains/Col Sharma/Capt Shukla to work SDR’s 100 corers project. Sh RC Aggarwal with all his leap frog mentality is a fly. He chosen and placed five project directors and five project manager in SDR project, where only software simulation is done at DEAL. The hardware development will be negotiated and outsource by these same set of well trained experts – Jaihind
