    Q. 15
    The Project 17A is the follow on the Project 17 (Shivalik class) frigates for the Indian Navy. A total of seven ships will be built. One will be built abroad and the remaining six ships will be built at Mazagon Dock Limited or at GRSE. The request for information was issued in December 2007 to Russian, European and American shipyards. Russia has offered the Project 22550 in reply to the RFI. The Indian shipyards would require a partner to design the ship, since modular construction technique will be utilized in building these ships. DCNS and Fincantieri will bid for the design process
