    Let me make it more interesting. This is what as per The Hindu...

    Stealth frigates deal with Russia stumbles on costs

    It starts with stumbling of the planned project of acquiring unfinished frigates.

    From here on the 1 billion price tag has started emerging. But till that moment no Indian dock has been selected to carry on the buildup. Although later reports suggested that it would be GSL and they too had started upgrading themself for this at a cost of 4000 crore INR.

    After this came the quote of Russian expert which indicates that the three ships which were lying with them would not be sold to India.

    But whatever be the course of action in due time, we have to keep in mind the fact that GSL has not yet ventured anywhere in frigate construction. This would be first for them even if its only 2 in numbers. Now they can't hire expertise from Garden Reach or Mazgoan for this. ToT or No ToT, they would have to build up on expertise for this. Now expertise buildup doesn't come cheap. Although 1 billion makes it sound too much for the deal, but it also involves transfer of tech and most important resource and infra buildup. So all in all, it is not a lost deal.

    Question: It is not the price but why buy when we already have our own design which is better both in terms of design and price?

    Ans: Geopolitical gains (if at all we are still serious about buying it after Russia's non-cooperation at BRICS GOA 2017------ we are experienced in killing any deal even at the advanced stage).
