India’s state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is participating in the procurement of 111 Naval Utility Helicopters (NHUs) for the Indian Navy (IN) for INR217.38 billion (USD3.13 billion), in a programme that is intended exclusively for private indigenous manufacturers.

Official sources said HAL submitted two responses on 26 April – alongside six others from private Indian companies – to a February Request for Expression of Interest (REOI) for the importation of 16 NUHs and licence-building the remaining 95.

One HAL response was as a DPSU, while the other was from the HAL-led Indo-Russian Helicopters Limited (IRHL) joint venture (JV) with Russian Helicopters.
