India to reissue 56 naval choppers tender

India has scrapped the tender to procure 56 Naval Helicopters from abroad at a worth around Rs. 9000 crore. The tender was issued two years ago for the Indian Navy, specifying the requirement for 4.5 tonne twin-engines helicopters which can be used for both shore-based and offshore operations, operating from ship decks in all weather, day and night. Now, the government would be initiating fresh acquisition process where these choppers would be made in the country involving Indian manufacturers, allowing partnering with the foreign vendors.
