    EVENDALE, Ohio -- GE Marine reports that the Indian Navy commissioned the INS Shivalik stealth frigate on April 29, 2010, at the Indian Navy's shipyard in Mumbai. This first-in-class frigate, built by Mazagon Dock Ltd. (MDL), is powered by two GE LM2500 aeroderivative marine gas turbines with two diesels in a COmbined Diesel Or Gas turbine (CODOG) configuration. This project marks the first LM2500-powered ship to enter service with the Indian Navy.

    GE also provided four LM2500 gas turbine kits to Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL), Bangalore, which HAL assembled and tested for the Indian Navy's indigenous aircraft carrier; the keel laying took place on February 28, 2009. This brings the total to 10 LM2500 propulsion modules HAL provided to the Indian Navy.

    So HAL did not build the turbine "under license". There is a difference in assembly from kit, and manufacturing.
