German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will pay a State visit to India and is keen to push for the government-to-government route for the supply of six next-generation advanced conventional submarines for an Indian Navy as it has decided to stay out of the Project-75I tender due to liabilities clauses.
Germany has offered its HDW Class 214 Submarine along with the South Korean KSS-III diesel-electric attack submarine are the only two candidates that meet the technical and financial conditions under the Project-75I tender floated by the Indian Navy but Germany has decided to stay out of the tender process and is now pitching for a G2G deal.
idrw.org in past has reported that it is unlikely that Indian Navy will dilute technical requirements but might allow some changes in liabilities clauses but going for a G2G deal for the submarine is also highly unlikely to be pursued.
