First of six new Indian Navy submarines to be complete by 2016

Project 75 (Scorpene) class SSKAfter much delay, the process for constructing six new submarines for the Indian Navy can finally begin now after the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) accepted a confidential report on the capacity of domestic shipyards to carry out the mammoth task.

The DAC meeting on Friday was scheduled to take up the issue but it could not come up for discussion as Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had to leave mid-way.

Sources said the subject would be taken up at the DAC meeting scheduled to be held on Tuesday.
