The contract for indigenous design and construction of three Cadet Training Ships was concluded between MoD and M/s L&T in Mar 23. These Cadet Training Ships will be utilised for training officer cadets at sea after their basic training ashore.

These ships will also extend training facility to cadets from friendly foreign countries.

This is yet another significant milestone in Indian Navy’s pursuit towards indigenous shipbuilding and is in consonance with Government of India’s vision of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ and ‘Make in India’ initiative.
