1st,till thir date our shipyards except Cochi were using outdated procedures but now our government shipyards are being massively upgraded with 400 ton Goliath cranes and modular ship building capability which will cut the required time by half.
2nd,HSL Vishakhapattanam has been taken over by MoD and now is solely a defense ship yard-this too will help the bring up the number of warships can be built per year.
3rd,most crucial point-the private shipyards like ABG shipyard,Pipavav,L&T etc has entered into the fray with their modern facilities.
So,8-10 warships now seems possible more than ever.
