Defence Ministry initiates process to appoint new Navy Chief, decision shortly


The Defence Ministry has initiated the process to appoint the next chief of naval staff as the incumbent Admiral Sunil Lanba is scheduled to retire from service on May 31 this year. Sources said the decision is expected to be announced soon.

“A proposal has been initiated with the names of senior-most officers in it for the appointment of the next Navy chief. A decision in this regard is expected to be announced very soon,” government sources told ANI.

As per seniority list of the Navy, Vice Admiral Bimal Verma is the senior-most among the top three officers of the maritime force followed by Vice Admirals Karambir Singh and Ajith Kumar, respectively.

However, sources did not rule out the possibility of supersession in the appointment as the service record of one of the senior officers has the mention of the Navy war room leak case in it.  Read More
