The Make-in-India programme received a big boost on Thursday as the first of the six Scorpene-class submarines, being built in India as part of technology transfer from France, was delivered to the Navy. Named after the dreaded deep sea predator Tiger Shark, the INS Kalvari is the first indigenously built submarine in 22 years. A stealth boat, it will act as a force multiplier for the Navy by launching massive attacks through precision guided weapons. It has a range of 12,000 km, allowing for a wide area of operation.
