Right now, there are 2 major concerns in India. One is that slipping timelines could leave India without a serviceable carrier. The other is the extent of the increases, especially if more are added once India has paid for most of the budgeted work and is deep into the commitment trap. Current estimates place the overall cost of the refit as high as $1.35 billion, but figures are not final and time/money tradeoffs may well lie ahead. The initial reports sparked controversy in India, but even the Ministry has now admitted their veracity, and the buy has now become the subject of high level diplomacy…



Oh Great , so India might not even have a working carrier within 3 years - the estimations is 2012 for Vikramaditya and Viraat has had it - she is right at the end of life RIGHT NOW.
