Re: Indian Nuclear Submarines -3

The six SSNs are to come from the navy budget, right alongside every other naval project.

There are reports of special budgets, but those are for other projects. The longer they continue to delay the sanction of funds for IAC-2, that much longer it will take for the vessel to arrive.
