Meeting with Hon’ble Defence Minister

• Met the Hon’ble Defence Minister alongwith Senior Management of Alcock Ashdown Ltd., Bhavnagar in his office on 14th December, 2016.
• During the discussion, I proposed AAGL to enter into a tie-up with the renowned Public Sector Shipyard, Cochin Shipyard Ltd. (CSL) possibly with equity sharing.
• Thereafter MoD may close the project with AAGL and revive the project with CSL on revised project cost.
• CSL will execute the project for construction or remaining vessels at AAGL yard itself by deploying suitable technical manpower and can make use of all the facilities available at AAGL.
• Hon’ble Defence Minister advised me to call Cochin Shipyard Ltd. for meeting to explore the possibilities of the tie up/equity sharing/long term lease agreement with AAGL.
