This project was cleared two years back. Called P-75 India, under this project, the authorities will manufacture major defence platforms indigenously.

German defence minister Boris Pistorius graced the occasion on which the MoU was signed. He exchanged talks with Rajnath Singh in Delhi on Tuesday. The minister pitched in front of Rajnath Singh to build the submarines in India.

The new advanced HDW Class 214 submarines have been offered to be manufactured by TKMS. Officials of TKMS expressed that both nations can trust them through years of expertise and professional competence.

The present-day update received mixed reactions from netizens. Some people expressed agitation against the decision. They suggested that L&T should be given a chance. Some people were curious about the possible specs of these submarines. Some enquired if the submarines are going to be nuclear power submarines.
