“INS Kavaratti”  is scheduled to be commissioned into the Indian Navy by Indian Army Chief, General MM Naravane at Naval Dockyard, Visakhapatnam on Thursday.

The ship will be commissioned into the Navy as a combat-ready platform as the ship has completed sea trials of all the systems fitted onboard.

Kavaratti takes her name from erstwhile INS Kavaratti which was an Arnala Class missile corvette.
