The Indian shipyards are well-equipped to build own warships since the technological advancements taking place in the country over the years are in line with international standards.

The Indian shipyards indeed have built as many as 46 warships for Indian Navy so far and will continue their contribution in strengthening the Navy in future as well, Eastern Naval Command (ENC) chief vice-admiral Anil Chopra has said.

He was addressing newsmen on the eve of the Navy Day here Tuesday. The vice-admiral said that even as the world is focusing on the East, especially the Asia Pacific and Indo Pacific, it has become a critical security concern for India as many ships and submarines have been deployed near the neighbouring countries as part of the security measures.

The ENC is responsible for safeguarding India’s maritime interests, which includes providing security along the 2,600 km coastline and setting up an Exclusive Economic Zone of six lakh sq km to share the waters with the other countries of the eastern Indian Ocean.
