Abstract

A case is presented to closely look at the Productivity improvement of Indian Shipyards through foreign collaborations. It is proposed that Government of India, adopt two well intentioned strategies relating to carriage of Indian Cargo in Indian Built ships. All Indian Navy vessels shall be constructed in Indian Shipyards only. It is proposed that Government of India sets up a Shipbuilding Technology Centre in the immediate future. Steps have been suggested so that Government and Industry jointly can collaborate on long term basis with some advanced shipyard in Japan/Korea.

Keywords: Shipbuilding, sea trade, defence indigenization, productivity, subcontractors, cost benefit
