India buys 80 Mi-17

India would buy 80 medium-lift Mi-17 helicopters from Russia for Rs 6,500 crore, the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) decided.
The CCS`s decision to buy the choppers and renegotiate the terms of the Gorshkov aircraft carrier deal came two days before the arrival of Russian President Dimitry Medvedev to India.
The helicopters are also used by the armed forces for logistical support as well as during disaster-management situations.  Prime Minister Manmohan Singh  hosted  Medvedev, who lands in New Delhi on December 4th , to a private dinner before having formal talks with him on the next day.
A framework deal to purchase nuclear reactors and fuel is at the top of the agenda for Medvedev after the Nuclear Suppliers` Group lifted restrictions on its 45 members in September from engaging in civil nuclear with India.
