The Ministry of Defence will buy 41 more ALH advanced light helicopters from public sector Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.

The contracts worth Rs 6100 crores ($951 million) will be executed in a period of 60 months.

The Indian Army has placed an order for 40 ALH, while the Navy has placed an additional order for one helicopter. "It reposes faith of Indian Defence forces in indigenous ALH which has been serving them with distinction for a long time" he said.

In March, HAL had signed a contract for supply of 32 ALHs to boost the maritime security capabilities of the Navy and the Coast Guard.
