The Gujarat-based company which intends to break-up the former Navy carrier Viraat for scrap continues to offer a sliver of hope for a rescue plan that involves its transfer to Envitech Marine Consultants Private Limited which intends to convert the warship into a maritime museum.

As per news report of NDTV, however, the terms now being offered make it almost impossible for this plan to be realised. "If there is a [government sanctioned] No Objection Certificate and they [Envitech] send full payment in one shot, then it is possible,'' said Mukesh Patel, the Chairman of Alang-based Shree Ram ship-breakers told NDTV. That payment is expected to be at least Rs.110 crore. Earlier reports indicate that Shree Ram procured the warship from the government-run Metal Scrap Trade Corporation Limited (MSTC) through an e-auction for Rs.38 crores.
