NEW DELHI (PTI): Indian Defence Ministry has sent a naval project for building four new guided missile destroyer warships to Finance Ministry for clearance, before it goes to Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) for final approval.

Defence Ministry officials said here Friday that the project that may be worth Rs 30,000 crore envisaged building the guided missile destroyers as a follow-on to the on-going project of Kolkata class warships.
