“The ministry will give all the required support to the Shipyard to complete the projects in time. We will also ensure that their order book is full,” he told reporters after attending the meeting.

The minister said that Goa Shipyard has required skilled manpower and carries a track record of completing their projects before time.

Naik said that besides orders from Indian Defence forces, the ministry will also try to get assignments (orders) from navies like Sri Lanka and Russia for this Public Sector undertaking under ministry of Defence.

The minister said Goa Shipyard faces “no major challenges but some small issues which would be sorted out by the union government.”
