At a meeting of the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) chaired by defence minister Rajnath Singh approved the Construction of 6 new Submarines for the Indian navy and clear the fund of about ₹43,000 crores. The decision comes against the backdrop of a widening gap between Indian and Chinese naval forces.
DAC has approved the tender or RFP (request for proposal) to be issued to defence Shipyard Mazgaon Dock and private ship-builder L&T for the make in India conventional submarine building program project called Project-75 India P-75 (I).
The DAC is the defence ministry’s highest decision-making body on procurement. According to a statement from the defence ministry, the construction of the submarines is the first acquisition under the strategic partnership model—that is, the Indian industry in partnership with foreign equipment manufacturers. In January last year, the DAC had short-listed Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd and Larsen and Toubro as the Indian partners for the P-75I deal. There are also five foreign equipment manufacturers short-listed—Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, South Korea; Naval Group of France; Navantia of Spain; Rosoboronexport of Russia; and TKMS of Germany.

The six submarines to be built will be conventional, diesel-electric vessels and are expected to be larger than the Scorpene-class subs currently under construction at Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd in Mumbai. Submarines will be equipped with land-attack missiles and anti-ship cruise missiles. It is also expected to be capable of launching torpedoes at sea.
India need to strenthen the Indian navy near China borcder because China is ecpanding its China’s People’s Liberation Army Navy. The US Congressional Research Service predicted last year that China would build nearly 70 new warships by 2030, which would push the total number of its battleships to 420.
According to the Indian defence ministry, the Indian Navy has 150 ships and submarines with another 50 under various stages of construction. If we complete all the construction yet we do not compare our naval power to China.
