    Tough call or not, it is time to take the call.

    Anthony has done much damage. The Indian defence has been put back at least 10 years behind.

    It is time to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Indian shipyards are crying for orders. Banks are bailing out shipyards as revenues have fallen due to lack of shipbuilding orders. It makes no sense to go to overseas shipyards in this scenario.

    The government is quite serious about domestic shipbuilding.

    The government approved DRDO projects and OFB modernization projects as the first order of business immediately after taking charge. The government continues to remove roadblocks in domestic R&D.

    Though the issue of shipbuilding subsidies to Indian shipyards was brought in few years back, it has now become prominent since Indian shipyards are now able to muster contracts for foreign vessels and international shipyards are full and overbooked with orders for the next 2-3 years.

    I am sure Mr Parrikar will clear this matter expeditiously. As I hoped, he will give it to MOD owned shipyard to avoid further delay.
    Tendering again will not help as it will only introduce more delay.

    The ships can be built with the help of private industry and some equipment imports.
