Mumbai: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday inaugurated a submarine assembly workshop in Mazagaon.
During the occasion, the Defence Minister Parrikar said, “The P75 project might go through strategic partner route.”
Earlier in 2014, when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was holding the portfolio of Defence Minister, had reviewed the progress of the workshop. Jaitley was then accompanied by Chief of Naval Staff Admiral R.K. Dhowan during his visit to the Mazagon Docks Ltd when the Project 75 to construct six state-of-the-art submarines was underway in collaboration with M/s. DCNS, France.
Considered as a crucial project for the country and the Indian Navy, the project will give a massive fillip to India’s indigenous submarine construction capability.
