PM to commission 1st Scorpene submarine

Marking an important milestone, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will commission the first indigenously-built Scorpene-class submarine ‘INS Kalvari’ to the Indian Navy.

This will be the first conventional submarine to be inducted into the Indian Navy after more than 17 years as the navy’s submarine arm celebrates its golden jubilee this year.

The submarine, incorporating state-of-the-art features has been built by the Mazagaon Dockyard Ltd under its Project 75, with technological collaboration from DCNS, France.
