The leaked documents on India’s Scorpene submarine that have been posted on the website by an Australian news agency have been examined and do not pose any security compromise as the vital parameters have been blacked out.
The Indian MoD has seized the documents and have examined the documents, it said in a press statement Thursday.
The Indian Navy has taken up the matter with Director General of Armament of the French Government expressing concern over this incident and has requested the French Government to investigate this incident with urgency and share their findings with the Indian side. An internal audit of procedures to rule out any security compromise is also being undertaken. The matter is being taken up with concerned foreign governments through diplomatic channels to verify the authenticity of the reports, the Indian MoD further added.
The Government of India, as a matter of abundant precaution, is also examining the impact if the information contained in the documents claimed to be available with the Australian sources is compromised.

The launch will start a trail of events, which will lead to the separation of the submarine from the pontoon on which it is being assembled and its final setting afloat, an official release said
The Indian defense ministry will induct the Scorpene-class submarines only if they are ready for deployment in operations. This is a major change in thinking of the government as earlier the shipyards would hand over warships to the Navy and then would continue trials on the systems on board and the vessels would be made fighting fit long after their official induction
The leak of sensitive information about the Indian Scorpene submarines program was done from an office in Adelaide which is believed to be South Australian crossbench senator Nick Xenophons electorate office, an Australian newspaper reports. Former submariner turned political staffer Rex Patrick, an adviser to Xenophon, has been identified as the source of information for a front page newspaper story in August that triggered an international furore that embarrassed India and the French government-owned submarine builder DCNS, Sydney Morning Herald reports quoting an investigation done by Fairfax Media
French DCNS is likely to lose an order to build three additional submarines apart from the existing order of six already being built at Mazagon Docks Limited (MDL) as part of the P-75 project due to last months Scorpene document leak.
