Updated : October 09, 2019 09:45 AM IST

Rafale, a 4.5 generation multi-role combat aircraft, will greatly increase India's geo-political stature in South Asia.
India is the fourth country after France, Egypt and Qatar to have inducted the Rafale into its air force.
India chose October 8 for receiving the first Rafale jet not only because it is the occasion of Dussehra, but the day is also celebrated as Air Force Day every year.
