PM Modi To Commission INS Kalvari, Navy’s First Conventional Submarine In 17 Years, On 14 December


INS Kalvari, the first of the six Scorpene-class submarines as part of Project-75, will reportedly be commissioned into the Indian Navy on 14 December by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India Today has reported.

Kalvari is named after the dreaded Tiger Shark, a deadly deep sea predator of the Indian Ocean. It will be the first conventional submarine to be inducted into the navy in over 17 years. The first Kalvari, commissioned on 8 December 1967, was also the first submarine of the Indian Navy. It was decommissioned on 31 May 1996, after nearly three decades of service.

It will reportedly be the stealthiest diesel-electric attack boat in service and will take the number of submarines in the Indian Navy to 14. In view of increasing Chinese activity in the Indian Ocean, the Navy needs at least 24 to 26 submarines to effectively monitor the region. Read More…
