HAL signs ~6,100-crore deal for supply of choppers to Army, Navy


The Hindustan Aeronautic­s Ltd (HAL) has said it has signed a ~6,100-crore contract for supply of 41 Advanced Light Helicopter­s (ALH) to the Indian Army and one to the Indian Navy.

The contracts would be executed in a period of 60 months, the company said on Monday.

HAL, in a statement here, said the contract was signed between the ministry of defence and HAL in New Delhi recently.

Officials from the ministry of defence, the Indian Army, the Indian Navy and HAL were present during the event.

“The latest order reflects the trust on HAL’s capabiliti­es and gives an impetus to the Make in India campaign... It reposes faith of Indian Defence forces in indigenous ALH which has been serving them with distinctio­n for a long time,” HAL Chairman and Managing Director T Suvarna Raju said.

In March this year, HAL had signed a contract for supply of 32 ALH to boost maritime security capabiliti­es of the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard.
