An estimated total of 6300 crores were put on stake to destroy the centre of Jais-e-Mohammed, from which 3686 crores were kept for emergency situations. According to a report by India today, the Indian Air Force used 1000kg bombs to destroy many small terror camps. Each bomb costed 56 Lakhs each.
Talking about the damage each bomb does, they destroy everything within 200 feet and leaves a crater 30feet in diameter and 15 feet deep. Also, it releases hot gases within the area and kills or suffocate living beings.
During the mission, an airborne warning and control system surveillance aircraft was deployed at 36 degrees to keep an eye on Pakistan’s airspace. The cost of that aircraft is Rs. 1750 crores.
