Indian Navy is taking the online route to sell spare parts of warships to friendly countries.

Indian Navy has moved from buyers’ naval force to the sellers’ force. Presently, Indian Navy sells and on request supplies small warships and spare parts to several friendly countries including Maldives, Myanmar, Vietnam, Brunei, Thailand, Shree Lanka and Mauritius.

Several naval forces have on multiple of occasions expressed disapproval for delay on account of Indian Navy while delivering spare parts of warships. It also has been observed that the aspiring buyers have procured the required parts from other countries engaged in similar trades due to long delays in the process.

Rear Admiral Montey Khanna, Commandant of Naval War College was quoted as saying by Free Press Journal, “Conventional system that requires paper work is taking unnecessary and too much of time. The delay takes toll on maintaining the relations with the friendly nations which is our utmost objective.”

He added, “Just like other developed countries, we should take requests and order online. It will save our time, money and resources.”

The idea has to be cleared by Ministry of Defense, however. Once it came into practice, the buyers just need to click on the list of required objects. India Navy will take a note of the requirements and dispatch the articles as per requests made by the buyers.
