    He might be happy to get anything, as I said in another post, IN must be angry as hell, since they hardly got any procurements in the last 3 years.

    For the first production line at MDL, the second one can churn out Scorpenes at a greater rate.

    Even the Makar Class Survey vessel project is in danger...

    I had a brief convo with the owner of design, he says he is planning to go legal, against navy and the Gujarat State Gov shipyard which is involved in the project...

    That project seems to have been plagued with issues from the outset.

    The MoD's inability to release the SP chapter of DPP-2016 thus far seems to be particuarly hurting the IN; LHD/LPD, P-75(I), follow-on Scorpenes, (make in India) NMRH (perhaps NLUH als0) and Minesweeper deals are all stalled waiting for the SP chapter to be released.

    Might be, but dpp is a recent issue, that doesn't explain why all these procurements are still pending for years.

    The owner of the design says, that the design he provided to the Gujarat Shipyard was only for light survey duties and for training the sailors.

    But the Gujarat Shipyard has manipulated or done wrong. The Navy wanted a vessel with highly specialized survey and oceanographic equipments ,and when the first vessel was delivered , its performance was highly unsatisfactory .

    Further Navy has received only 1 of the 6 vessels contracted.

    Under UPA they were stalled for the typical reasons, under NDA (remember they have been there for almost 3 years now) they have been stalled awaiting this mighty SP chapter of DPP-2016.

    And the circus continues.....

    Others are for different reasons.
