    NEW DELHI - Construction delays to four French-designed
    submarines have led India to reverse an 11-year-old decision and seek German
    help to upgrade four older subs.

    ...

    Later in the decade, New Delhi blacklisted HDW because of
    alleged bribery in the sub deal. The ban was lifted after an inquest by India's
    Central Bureau of Investigation ended without resolution.

    Thats a good news . But I have a doubt about French raising objection about German involvement in their subs .

    There was a report about Greece wanting to sell brand new german subs they had due to their tight budgetary constraints isn't it possible that we purchase them to prevent further fall of submarine strength.

    That article has nothing to do with Germany touching Scorpenes.

    We have 4 German HDWs in our inventory. So, they are possibly in line for upgrades due to the delay in Scorpene.

    Our HDWs are called the Shishumar class.

    This has nothing to do with any Scorpenes we have(whcih we don't) or any decommissioned subs from Germany.
