New Delhi:
The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Centre to file an affidavit within 10 days saying that the pricing in the Rafale fighter jet deal between India and France is exclusive and could not be shared with the court.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices UU Lalit and KM Joseph also asked the Centre to share information which could be brought in the public domain with the petitioners.

The top court, which has now fixed the matter for hearing on November 14, said documents considered strategic and confidential might not be shared.

Earlier, the SC sought pricing and strategic details from the Centre, asking it to submit the details in a sealed cover in 10 days.

The government said such details would be covered under the Official Secrets Act. Attorney Genenral KK Venugopal told the Bench that it was not possible to share the said details.
