DAC nods construction of six submarines for Indian Navy

Published 9:48 pm | February 01, 2019

In a land mark decision, the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) approved indigenous construction of six submarines
for the Indian Navy involving over Rs 40,000 crore.

This is the second project under the MoD’s ambitious Strategic Partnership
(SP) model that aims at providing a significant fillip to the government’s
‘Make in India’ programme, an official handout said here last evening.

SP model envisages indigenous manufacturing of major defence platforms by
an Indian Strategic Partner, who will collaborate with foreign OEM to set up
production facilities in the country.

The model has a long term vision of promoting India as a manufacturing hub
for defence equipment through transfer of niche technologies and higher
Indigenous Content thereby enhancing self-sufficiency for meeting the future
requirements of the Armed Forces.

The latest DAC approval would be second such project following indigenous
production of 111 Naval Utility Helicopters that was approved in August 2018.

Construction of six submarines under Project 75(I) will provide a major
boost to the existing submarine design and manufacturing eco-system in India
through transfer of design and equipment technology as well as necessary
skill sets.

Besides, the DAC also approved the acquisition of approximately 5000 Milan Anti Tank Guided Missiles for the Army, the handout added.
