NEW DELHI (PTI): The Defence Ministry has issued a tender expected to be worth over Rs 25,000 crore for building warships which can carry helicopters.

"The tender for the Landing Platform Decks (LPDs) has been issued," Director General Acquisition SB Agnihotri said in New Delhi at a FICCI interactive session with leaders of the defence industry.

He suggested that the tender was issued as part of efforts by the government to build the capabilities of the indigenous industry.

Agnihotri said he had institutionalised meetings with the industry captains at the Institute of Defence Studies and Analysis and expressed confidence that such interactions would continue even after his departure from the Ministry.

He has been promoted as Secretary to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.

The DG Acquisition said the Ministry was taking steps to sort out the problems faced by the industry and keeps updating the Defence Procurement Procedure in this regard.
