New Delhi: The Ministry of Defence has signed a contract with Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Haridwar on Wednesday for procurement of 16 upgraded super-rapid gun mounts (SRGM) along with associated equipment/accessories for Indian Navy under Buy (Indian) category at a total cost of ₹2,956.89 crore.

The upgraded SRGM, which will be manufactured by M/s BHEL at its Haridwar Plant, is a medium caliber anti-missile/anti aircraft point defence weapon system which provides a sustained rate of fire and high accuracy.

The weapon system is capable of multiple engagements in multi-threat scenarios and has a proven record of very good performance against missiles and highly maneuverable fast attack crafts.

Upgraded SRGMs will be installed onboard Indian Navy's in-service and newly built ships by M/s Mazagaon Dock and Shipbuilders Limited, Mumbai, and Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers, Kolkata.

The project will generate an employment of two and half lakh mandays over a period of five years and encourage active participation of various Indian industries including MSME, thus significantly contributing to the government's efforts to achieve “atmanirbharta” (self-reliance) in defence.
