    Indian Anti-sub warship INS Kadmat, to join Navy fleet today

    The Indian Navy is set to receive a major boost on the seventh anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack when INS Kadmat, an anti-submarine warfare corvette, will be added to its fleet of warships.
    Designed by the Directorate of Naval Design, the warship is the second in its class of four ASW corvettes being built by the Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers, the state-run defence manufacturer, under Project-28 (P28) for the Indian Navy. The GRSE will hand over INS Kadmat to the Navy at its Fitting Out Jetty on Thursday.
    Chief Staff Officer (Technical) Rear Admiral Narayan Prasad of the Eastern Naval Command, Naval Officer In Charge (West Bengal) Commodore Ravi Ahluwalia and GRSE chairman and managing director Rear Admiral (Retd) A.K. Verma are scheduled to attend the event. On Wednesday, Commo-dore Ahluwalia told this newspaper, “There is a lot of indigenous features in INS Kadmat, an ASW corv-ette, which is required by the Indian Navy for its operational activities. The Navy feels this warship will add boost its capability.”
    INS Kadmat is the second naval warship which has been built in the country with indigenously developed special grade high-tensile (DMR249A) steel produced by the Steel Authority of India. Its hull encompasses the bulk of sensors and weapon systems which are also indigenously manufactured.
    The second ASW corvette will be based at Vishakhapatnam, the ENC headquarters. It will also participate in the International Fleet Review from February 5 to 8 next year in a fleet of around 40 Indian Navy warships.
    Meanwhile, the Indian Coast Guard (North East Region) will kickstart its coastal security exercise off the West Bengal coast in the Bay of Bengal from Thursday to check the preparedness and coordination between different agencies during an emergency. Its spokesperson Avinandan Mitra said, “The exercise will continue till November 27. This is the second time it is going to be held in a year with the help of the Indian Navy, Kolkata Port Trust and Marine Police and fisheries department of the West Bengal.”

    Nine countries keen on warships built at Garden Reach
    Nine countries have shown keen interest in getting their warships and patrolling vessels manufactured by the Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited (GRSE).
    This comes after the GRSE-built offshore patrolling vessel (OPV), CGS Barracuda, was commissioned on 12 March in Mauritius in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister of Mauritius, Anerood Jugnauth.
    Rear Admiral AK Verma, chairman and managing director of GRSE, said that representatives from some of the nine countries have visited the ship building yard while discussions are on with the remaining countries. The nine countries are the Philippines, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Ghana, Nigeria, Algeria, Cyprus, Kenya and Egypt.
    The GRSE has already cleared the technical bidding to manufacture two light frigate-class warships for the Philippines.
    “Most of the countries have shown interest in getting their landing craft vessels, offshore patrolling vessels and inshore patrolling vessels manufactured in GRSE,” said rear admiral Verma at a programme today, where the GRSE handed over an anti-submarine warfare corvette-class vessel, Kadmatt to the Indian Navy. Kadmatt will be commissioned in January in Vizag. It will also be a part of the Indian Navy's fleet at the International Fleet Review to be held in February.
    With handing over of the Kadmatt on Thursday, the GRSE has successfully completed the manufacture of two corvette class warships for the Indian Navy. Two more of the same class - Kiltan and Kavaratti- will also be built in GRSE.
    Besides corvette warships, the GRSE is also building three frigate-class warships, eight landing craft and four fast-attack craft for the Navy.
    This is state of art anti-submarine warfare corvette which will provide some breather for Philippines, Vietnam navy in south china sea
