France withdraws from India’s P-75 submarine project ahead of Modi’s meeting with Macron – India Hindi News


Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently on a tour of Europe where he will also meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, who retained the presidency after his recent re-election. Meanwhile, ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit to France, the French defense company Naval Group announced that it was unable to participate in the P-75 India (P-75I) project.

Explain that under this project, six conventional submarines will be built in India for the Indian Navy. The French conglomerate is one of five international companies selected for the Rs 43,000 crore project. She said she could not fulfill the terms of the Request for Proposal (RFP) and therefore would not continue to bid.

According to the report of The Indian Express, this project is the largest project under the new strategic partnership model. Under this project, an Indian company will jointly build submarines in India and share technology with the participation of international companies.

The P-75I is India’s second submarine-building project. Naval Group has completed construction of six Kalvari-class (Scorpene-class) conventional submarines under the P-75 project in partnership with Mazagon Dockyard Shipbuilding Limited (MDL) in India.
