Navy Utility Helicopters to be Made in India: Ministry of Defence issues EoI


The Ministry of Defence has issued Expression of Interest (EoI) for short-listing of potential Indian Strategic Partners and foreign OEMs for procuring Rs 21,738-crore 111 Naval Utility Helicopters (NUH) for the Indian Navy where 60% of the helicopter will be indigenised.

This is in line with the approval the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) headed by defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman had given for “platform-specific” guidelines for the purchase of 111 naval utility helicopters under the ‘Strategic Partnership’ model to replace the Navy’s outdated fleet of French-designed Chetak choppers.
