Supercomputing in Kolkata (Calcutta)

According to C|Net, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics in Kolkata just bought a 96-processor XD1 supercomputer (datasheet) from Cray. The specifications page does’t list a 96-processor unit but from the looks of it, it should be around 500 Gflops. That makes me wonder why they didn’t purchase a supercomputer from C-DAC which is making and selling supercomputers all over the globe much cheaper comparatively. I am disappointed.
