No Cabinet role in S-band deal: PM

 “There is no question of the Prime Minister’s Office being asked to approve the deal. It never came to that level,” Singh told the Rajya Sabha.

 When Opposition members sought to know who in the PMO was responsible for approving the deal between Devas Multimedia Pvt Ltd (the Indian arm of Forge Advisors of US) and Antrix Corp, the commercial arm of ISRO, Singh said Antrix is a commercial arm of ISRO and in normal course its deal with Devas does not go to the government for approval. Only the launch of satellite “did come to the Cabinet,” he said.
