Indian Naval Indigenisation Plan 2015-2030

Why in news?
The Navy has unveiled a 15-year plan to achieve full indigenisation in all phases of warship construction, from ship-building to systems to weapons, and aligned it with Prime Minister's “Make in India.”  The Navy wants to involve private industry in a big way in this initiative.

  • A warship can be broadly divided into three segments — float, move and fight. 
    • Float - 90 % indigenisation 
    • Move (propulsion) - 60 %
    • Fight (weapons) - 30 % 
      • which are priority areas to be addressed.
  • Among platforms, a major area of concern is helicopters.
