IAF to get 9 new planes

A top decision-making body of the Defence Ministry has cleared an Indian Air Force (IAF) proposal to buy nine aircraft for Rs 1,100 crore to boost its signal intelligence gathering capabilities.
Officials said the Defence Acquisition Council, chaired by Defence Minister A K Antony on Saturday, approved the proposal for procuring the nine planes that are likely replacements for the now phased-out Canberra fleet.
“The IAF will now  issue a Request for Proposals for buying these planes,” officials said.
