Indian Defense Acquisition Council has approved upgrading of  Delhi and Talwar Class warships including weapons and sensors for INR 2990 crores (US $472 million).

The Indian Navy is eyeing to increase its capability. The weapons might include surface-to-air missiles for the Delhi class warships that would be bought from Russia.

The Indian Navy has prepared a maritime infrastructure perspective plan to improve maintenance and operability of naval assets, the Chief of Staff of the Navy, Admiral R K Dhowan had said in May this year.

“It has to be seen in the context of improving the battle readiness of the ever-increasing fleet of ships, submarines and aircraft which the navy has and will acquire in the near future,” he said.

Indian Navy is also in talks with Russia for 3 Grigorivich-class frigates, an improved version of the six Talwar-class frigates the Navy obtained between 2003-13.
