The Indian government has canceled the 12 construction program for new minesweepers of seekers-mines, which was to be carried out at the state shipbuilding enterprise Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL) in Goa in partnership with the South Korean corporation Kangnam Corporation, reports bmpd.


Marine minesweepers –seekers of the Yangyang type Navy of South Korea.

The cost of the program was estimated at Rs 32840 crores (about 5,19 billion dollars).

The official reason for the cancellation of the program was “the inability to reach a final agreement with Kangnam Corporation on the relative full satisfaction of Indian procurement procedures”.

An Indian spokesperson told reporters that "Kangnam demanded about $ 1 billion for licensing rights, project and technology transfer, and refused to fully accept Indian requirements for intellectual property rights and technical support in accordance with the principle of" Make in India. "

At the beginning of 2016, Kangnam won the tender for the construction of 12 minesweepers on the presented project and technologies. “It was understood that the final contract with the South Korean side should be concluded within six months. As a result, after two years of the negotiating epic, the contract was never signed, and now the agreement with Kangnam has been canceled, ”the article says.

Now, Indian officials are planning to announce another tender for the construction of ships. Requests for proposals will be sent to all the same companies: again, Kangnam Corporation, Italian Intermarine, Spanish Navantia, American Lockheed Martin, German ThyssenKrupp and two Russian companies under the auspices of Rosoboronexport.

    The Indians in this regard are generally tough - if you want to sell them and get billions - give them both technology and production in India.

      Yes, that's somehow not with everyone. They are ready to “forgive” many Americans ...

      The official reason for the cancellation of the program was "the inability to reach a final agreement with Kangnam Corporation relative" full satisfaction of Indian procurement procedures

      This "complete satisfaction" has already got the whole world, which are sexual.

      This "rigidity" can go sideways to them. They are played to the point that the main suppliers will lower them to the ground “hard”.

        Well, they will take it and begin to act like the Chinese, I’m sure that this will end. In part, I understand India, in a country where almost 80% lives not just below the poverty line ... Spending billions on toys is a luxury that’s not permissible.

        Quite, but on the other hand, the market is so capacious, I don’t want to lose it, they are traded in this, but this is already too much.
        The fighter - how many years has already been side to side, the air defense system - is also not going smoothly, they refused the Spike anti-aircraft missile systems at the last moment, and I think the kidalovo will continue.

      Explained to you, the Hindus need technology and intellectual property rights, not just ships

    For fun, here recently the Jews again made friends with the Indians ... kanyas and other sound was heard immeasurably.
    I wonder when their Indians will throw again, what sounds will go ???

    The Koreans are right, the Indians are instrumented and want not only to get weapons, but also to trade other people's ships as their own. All the same with them. They are used to getting technology on the ball.

    That's why they have far from the first contract to break down. They want too much.

    No matter how they were left without everything, they like to have a bit of fun (the tanks are not the same, the planes are not the same, the submarines are bad) and China at that time makes ships like cakes.

      Well, as it were, with the Indians in China, not “Wow!”, To put it mildly laughing
      Rather, against China and Pakistan
      Although, maybe the Chinese will advise them of the "technology", but the Indians are unlikely to be happy laughing

    But negotiations on the conclusion of contracts last for years, often the conditions change beyond recognition, as was the case with the Jaguars / Rafali contract.

    Damn, well, they would have ordered not twelve, but six minesweepers, just this billion would have appeared. Tones would have come out and launched production if needed.
