The top brass of the Indian Navy will soon be approaching the financial division in the Ministry of Defense to seek special provisions in the next year’s Navy budget that can be used to kickstart Phase-1 activities to develop a 65,000 ton aircraft carrier that can accommodate more deck-based fighter jets.

The Warship Design Bureau will get the seed money to progress upon the design of a new aircraft carrier as full-fledged program funding will take time.

Indian Navy has been vocal for 3 carrier Navy for a long time and have been pressing for 2ndIndigenous Aircraft Carrier which Navy thinks needs to be operational by 2030 or beyond as the Chinese People’s Liberation Army-Navy (PLAN) will make 3-4 Aircraft Carriers by that time. This is why Indian Navy wants to have 3 carriers for its fleet.

Indian Navy has rejected the offer of Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) to build another 45,000 ton aircraft carrier, and has opted for 65,000-ton supercarrier.
