Steel Cut On India's First Warship Design House

Indian Defence Minister AK Antony will formally put down the foundation stone to NIRDESH, India's first warship research and design institute about a half-hour from now in Kerala. According to an MoD press release a couple of days ago, the new design house will "concentrate on enhancing self reliance in production capabilities relating to all kinds of warships, submarines and other related platforms required by the Indian Navy and Coast Guard to safeguard our long coast line and protect maritime interests of India". This is of course a long delayed proposition -- India already has a robust indigenous warship building capability between naval designers, shipbuilders and DRDO. This will simply consolidate that.

RATShaker - better clean up your foul stiny mouth before posting messages and abusing people.

Have you ever walked into NSTL and asked any scientist who directly works there.

Do you think you really know more?

Go back to your hole and do lungi dance

Why does Antony wants to build everything in Kerela?
Kerela is infested with middle east returned jihadi muslims and communist labour unions. What takes 1 year to do in other places, takes 3 years in Kerela. Inspite of being the most well educated state, Kerela has no industrial base. There has to be some thoughts given to these facts before they start such money draining enterprise.
