In July 2008, in a major drive to modernise the armed forces and expand its aviation wing, the Defence Ministry issue a request for proposal (RFP) to procure 197 helicopters. The armed forces will modernise their helicopter fleet by 2010 by replacing the age-old Cheetah and Chetak, which had been in service for last 40 years. It was expected that the public sector Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) will develop the remaining 115 helicopters. The proposed procurement is worth Rs. 3000 crore. HAL will undertake the maintenance of these helicopters on a transfer of technology (ToT) basis. It has assured that it will develop the same type of platforms in five to seven years and will fulfill the rest of the requirements. The trials will end by 2009 and the induction of 197 helicopters will take place by 2010.

Six foreign companies will bid for the helicopter deal. The companies are Bell (US), Eurocopter, Augusta Westland (Italy), Rosobornexport (Russia), MD Helicopters (US) and Sikorsky (US). The total number of helicopters may increase from 312 to 384 units due to a new requirement for a large number of heavy-lift helicopters.
