In 2016, India had signed an inter-governmental agreement with France to procure 36-Rafale jets at a cost Rs 59,000 crore.
The IAF did not disclose the number of aircraft that landed in India but people familiar with the development said that four jets were part of the new batch.
Rajnath Singh said induction of Rafale jets into the IAF is crucial considering the kind of atmosphere being created along India's border.
Hollande had said that Dassault Aviation was given no choice but to partner with Anil Ambani-led Reliance Defence for the offset clause in the Rafale fighter jet deal.
The Congress alleged that Prime Minister Modi had made the announcement of "off-the-shelf" purchase of the fighters in Paris after paying an "extra amount".
The Rafale deal happened after "government-to-government" negotiations between India and France. It was done to fulfil the urgent requirement of the Indian Air Force, Goyal said.
The sources said it was selected for its "outstanding performance" and "competitive price", while refusing to directly counter the Congress' allegation, terming it a "domestic political issue".
Sources said teams from Dassault Aviation of France, the manufacturer of Rafale jets, had visited the Ambala base in Haryana in the recent past and reportedly finalised requirements.
