Indigenous Multi Role Helicopter (IMRH)

HAL has requested the Government for permissions to go ahead on the 'risk sharing' model to develop an Indigenous Multi Role Helicopter (IMRH). The IMRH plan, project costs is expected to be worth Rs 10000 Crores and will have several unique aspects, including a design that will allow it to operate with two different engines so that it does not remain dependent on any one source.

HAL will need foreign collaboration for the project and will be going in for a risk-sharing model where vendors will help during the developmental project. Approximately six-year developmental timeline is expected to ensure that the Indian made chopper will be ready by 2027, so as to start replacing its fleet of imported Mi-17s that will reach the end of service life.
