Mazgaon Dock Shipbuilders has said that the second Project-15B Destroyer INS Mormugao will be delivered next month and the trials of the third P-15B destroyer INS Imphal will also start later this year and it will be delivered to the Indian Navy in 2024.

Mazgaon Dock Shipbuilders expects the order for 6 Next Generation Destroyers for the Indian Navy by 2025 that will cost an estimated $7.5 billion dollars.

The 5th Kalvari class submarine has completed half of the sea trials and it will be delivered to the Indian Navy by the end of 2022 while the 6th and final submarine will be delivered in 2024.

Three Indian shipyards had earlier qualified for construction of LPDs: L&T, Hindustan Shipyard Limited (HSL) and Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL). Now MDL also qualifies for the contract due to recent enhancement of facilities. Evaluation of shipyards is complete and the project would now move towards Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) approval and formulation of RFP. The LPDs required by the Navy are similar in specifications to Landing Helicopter Docks (LHDs) rather than conventional LPDs. MDL has also confirmed that eight Next Generation Corvettes (NGC) are planned. This project was approved by the DAC in June.

MDL stated that the Indian Navy is considering construction of a repeat batch of Project-17A Nilgiri class frigates. Four of the seven Project-17A Nilgiri class frigates are being built by MDL and the rest by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE). The quantity of the follow-on class (Project-17B) frigates planned remains unclear. The order may be split between MDL and GRSE like in P-17A. MDL expects orders for both NGC and P-17B to be placed by 2025.
