"This is the highest-ever order which GRSE has got. This shows how much trust the government and the Navy has on us. It is a big shot in the arm for us," said GRSE's Chairman and Managing Director Rear Admiral A K Verma.

The Project 17A-class frigate is a follow-on of the Project 17 Shivalik-class frigate for the Indian Navy. The construction of the first ship is expected to start by early 2017 and is expected to be launched by 2020, following an upgrade of the two shipyards to incorporate modular construction techniques.
