Kalvari, the first of six Scorpene-class submarines handed over to the Indian Navy by shipbuilder Mazagon Dock limited, will be commissioned this month, a top Navy official said today.
"Kalvari is likely to be commissioned this month after extensive sea trials," Vice Admiral Girish Luthra, Flag Officer Commanding of the Western Naval Command, told reporters.
"Kalvari underwent around 120 days of extensive sea trials and tests for various equipment," he said.
The vessel is expected to bolster India's maritime prowess, the senior Navy official said.
The submarines, designed by French naval defence and energy company DCNS, are being built by Mazagon Dock Limited in Mumbai as part of Project-75 of the Indian Navy.
