    Why is India outsourcing all the work to Kaliningrad? India has proven they can at least build the hull and fit it out with imports domestically.

    Armand2REP, I agree with you in principle, but just like TrackWhack said, we don't have enough dry docks.

    Maybe if GoI approved private yards there would be enough?

    The Govt is thinking about it. But the problem is lack of expertise among private ship builders in building warships.

    Public ship yards can sell the know how or the expertise to private ship yards.
    Just to keep the business in our country.

    Here Russians are getting business.
