GSL is building five CGOPVs under a contract with the Indian Ministry of Defence signed in August 2016. Construction of the first vessel began in November 2016.

The vessels are based on an in-house design of GSL. The 2,400 tonnes vessels will be equipped with quick response boats for search and rescue and anti-piracy missions.
