    India Inc races to bag orders from defence sector | Business Standard

    So,

    Pipavav has started the construction of first of the 5 OPVs for the Navy.

    Also, ABG shipyard which had won won the tender for (2+1) Navy cadet training ship had started the steel cutting for first of the 3 in 2011/12 (Acc. to WiKi)

    so, ABG should be the first private shipyard to start the construction for Naval ship even if Pipavav might have own the first tender for construction for Naval vessel among private shipyard.

    Also, the design is bought from USA design firm( Alion) rather than SDB from Russia.

    Once these private shipyards acquire the necessary skills in systems integration and testing (~2020 to the latest), the DPSU ship yards would struggle to compete not only on cost, but also quality and scale.
