India Navys, INS Kalvari Scorpene class submarine  built at Mumbai Docks, Launched Into Water

The diesel-electric submarines are being built at the state-run Mazgaon docks in Mumbai; they are expected to be inducted into the Navy by 2018, about four years later than planned. The project has also over-shot the budget by nearly Rs. 5,000 crore and is expected to cost about Rs. 23,000 crore. "One (Scorpene) submarine will be delivered every nine months," said Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.

The first Scorpène submarine is to be named INS Kalvari and she will start sea trials in 2015.
