In a sensational report French newspaper Le Monde reveals that a company owned by Anil Ambani in France was given a waiver of more than 143.7 million Euros (1,119 Crore Indian Rupees approximately) in taxes. This followed Prime Minister Modi’s new Rafale deal and Dassault deciding on a two-week old Anil Ambani company to be its offset partner.
The report reveals that the French Government accepted a payment of just 7.3 million Euros (57 Crore Indian Rupees approximately) by way of settlement from Anil Ambani.
Julien bouissou, South Asia correspondent of Le Monde in a series of tweets provided a summary of the report published in the French newspaper:
The disclosure is revealing because Prime Minister Modi had unilaterally changed the terms for the supply of 126 Rafale fighter jets to the Indian Air Force.
