Dear Dr Saraswat Ji Jaihind 18th August 2010
DRDO has now been known as delayed research and derailed organisation. None of the projects/programs so far met the time schedule as per first proposal, not less than 15-20 years has taken to understand the technology. There is nothing wrong in it if the accountability is fixed to come up with one product which is import substitute.
The program on MBT was not new to Dr.Arunachalam as to develop a battle tank in India, the work was started way back in 1971 after Pakistan war. Instead of stressing research and technology development, Dr Aruncahlam was looking for sales managers/ technology managers, because he wanted to sell the tank outside the world. He had the confidence because he was awarded SS Bhatnagar medal for outstanding research work in the field of metallurgy. His plan to sell the tank was appreciated by everybody, the government of India later pumped money to DRDO at the tune of thousand and thousand crores. This resulted in to delay and derailed project because DRDO top levels indulges in money making and forgot the national mission.
The after effect was the science and technology were left behind and DRDO become a gathering of sales and technology managers but they had nothing to sell, the same is true even today.
DEAL being an integral part of DRDO was working honestly and developed systems like VLF, NARAD SATCOM terminal etc as long as it was getting projects worth lakhs of rupees. When crores were brought in DEAL the total activities derailed and the mangers lost their sleep just to meet the plan expenditure in crores. The Scientist ‘B’ to Scientist ‘F’ were engaged to raise the files, systems were procured in nineties were even not unpacked by 2005 and the repeat orders were again placed for systems like spectrum analyzers, network analyzers etc.
Even the second hand/refurbished/scrap electronics systems/ components were procured paying hefty foreign currency, under the patronage of Dr. Bains then Director (1996-2004) and expert guidance of Dr.K D Nayak (Present CC R&D). The present HMM of DEAL was one of the beloved and trained scientist who is also expert in fake procurement also involved in lot of fake procurement in DEAL in Dr.Bains era. I filed two RTI with custom department to find out how the CDEs (Custom Duty Certificates) were given for second hand/refurbished/scrap electronics systems/ components. On 13th August the top custom authorities at north block assured me to provide all CDE related information with respect to DEAL.
Sir, Sh RC Aggarwal, the present Director DEAL and mentor of SDR (Software Defined Radio) which is costing rupees 100 crores is surrounded by the same trained expert team who are the bluff masters in fake procurements. I fear that the new generation of young scientist will fall prey. As an example
i) DEAL’s young scientist developed software which was handed over by Capt. P.K.Shukla to a company and same was procured by DEAL in good price. (Capt Shukla presently in DRDO Hqrs.)
ii) The scientist and technical assistant from DEAL assembled the MM Wave components and same sets were procured by DEAL from VXL technologies.
Fortunately the practice of downsizing of IIT’s products is still on, IIT’s graduates are reporting to Grade IETE, MSc etc. In SDR project once again the story will repeat in same manner as it was in the time of Dr. Bains.
SA is requested to be conscious otherwise like Dr.Bains who manages to fool Dr.APJ Kalam then SA to RM in one of the single tender procurement which was revealed by CBI, Dehradun in its report.
CBI also indicated Sh R.K. Aggarwal, associate director, DEAL, project director, SDR for his association with the mysterious procurement from the company who was involved in unethical business.
Sh R.C. Aggarwal has so far made 20 procurement cases for SDR projects and awaiting a suitable date and time to visit SA (you) for obtaining clearance for PAC/single tender.
The present stores officer of DEAL, who is working sincerely and consciously as per DRDO’s procurement rules, but the HMM/CFA are afraid of him. They want to use same earlier tactics of procurement where the supplier were taken in to confidence to supplies the items as desired manner like earlier procurement of second hand/refurbished/scrap systems. The SDR’s indenter is finding stores officer as obstructer and will soon request you to help to clear the obstruction.
SDR procurement analysis of specific cases will be follows.
