Rolls-Royce has been identified as a player in a fraud investigation in an India defense contract.   RR reportedly paid more than $12 million to secure Indian contracts for engines. 

Company officials say that it has zero tolerance for bribery and corruption.  Media investigations have found the premium has paid money to companies linked to arms dealer Sudhir Choudhrie.  Choudhrie, is on an Indian government blacklist of people suspected of “corrupt or irregular practice.”

The blacklist was put in place to warn Indian government workers and ministers to take caution when dealing with what are considered to be “unscrupulous persons.”  Choudhrie is a London based businessman who is a member of the billion-dollar club, his attorneys said recently, "has never paid bribes to government officials or acted as an illegal middleman in defense deals". They said he has "no knowledge of the contents" of the list.
