One more aircraft to join the fleet of State Government

New Aircraft in Rajasthan Government



One more aircraft is going to be procured soon by Rajasthan Government to increase its fleet that already consists of “King Air C-900” and “King Air C-200” aircrafts.

It is pertinent to note that state government uses these aircrafts when the Chief Minister/ Governor and other esteemed officials of state government visit another city or state or out of country for official tour.

Prominent features of the proposed aircraft

  • Going to be the biggest and costliest aircraft in the fleet of state government;
  • Purchase price shall be around 150 – 170 crores;
  • Seating capacity shall be around 40 – 60.

Procurement may get delay due to government formalities

Procurement of aircraft may get delay up to 1 – 1.5 years. High-power committee appointed in the chairmanship of Principal Secretary has already approved the proposal. Finance department has also approved the proposal but it intends to include the proposed expenditure in the revised budget estimate in coordination with civil aviation department. Accordingly, provision shall account for in books and then civil aviation department shall proceed to procure the aircraft by issuing tenders for the procurement.

Fleet shall finally modernize after procurement

State government already owned two aircrafts and 1 helicopter in its fleet, but since the seating capacities of both the aircrafts was only 6 and they were procured long ago (27 years and 10 years ago) and the helicopter was already in a discard condition, hence government had to spend Lacs of rupees as renting charges for aircrafts and helicopters to continue air journeys of officials. After the procurement, those expenses may get reduce to a certain limit.

State officials need modern aircrafts to travel to ensure their own security and comfort. Don’t you think that all such resources related to security of esteemed persons also be updated? Give your views.
