HAL not only lost the RS 30,000 crore ‘offset contract ‘ but also the Rs 1 lakh crore ‘Life cycle Cost Contract ‘ of over 50 years over and above the RS 30,000 crore offset contract which is a great loss for the private sector company who have lots of experience and have been in this field for years together.
