India keeping close tabs on China-Pak collusion in the IOR, revising plans: Navy chief
Friday, 1 December 2023 India updates plans to counter China's expanding naval presence in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR). China has a sustained presence in the IOR with 6-8 warships at any given time, in addition to research vessels and fishing vessels. Pakistan is expanding its Navy with China's help. India constantly revises its plans and capability-development programs in response to these developments. The Indian Navy aims to have 175 warships with increased aircraft and helicopters by 2035.
In a historic move, on Friday, the Chief of the Naval Staff, Admiral R Hari Kumar, announced that the Indian Navy has appointed its first woman commanding officer on a naval ship. This groundbreaking decision reflects the Navy's commitment to diversity and gender equality.
The Indian Navy has taken a significant step towards shedding its colonial past. The Navy has reportedly issued directives allowing officers and sailors to wear ethnic attire, specifically kurta-pyjamas, in naval messes. This move follows the recent unveiling of a new design for the Admirals' epaulettes, reflecting the legacy of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
