Under a contract signed in October 2018, Russia will deliver Admiral Butakov and Admiral Istomin frigates to the Indian Navy. Russian naval defense industry and Indian Goa Shipyard have signed an additional contract for two more Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates to be license-built at Goa Shipyard in India.

In April 2019, Russian state defense agency Rosoboronexport has announced that Russia’s Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad has officially begun work on two modified Admiral Grigorovich-class (Project 1135.6P/M) guided-missile frigates destined for service in the Indian Navy.

According to news published "The Diplomat" on February 2020, India had already announced the procurement of two M90FR gas turbine engines, designed and built by Zorya-Mashproekt, directly from Ukraine for the two frigates built in Goa.

The Admiral Grigorovich-class is designed to conduct escorts and anti-submarine warfare missions. The Indian variant of the ship will use Brahmos missile instead of Russian-made Kalibr, Oniks or Zircon anti-ship cruise missiles.
