India’s home- built anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette — INS Kamorta — will be handed over to the Indian Navy by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) in Kolkata Saturday. The warship will be formally handed over to the Navy by Rear Admiral (retd) A K Verma, chairman and managing director of GRSE, in a brief ceremony at GRSE’s Fitting-Out-Jetty.
The ship would be commissioned next month at Visakhapatnam and would form part of the Eastern Fleet under the Eastern Naval Command.
INS Kamorta, first in its class of four ASW corvettes being built by GRSE under Project-28 for the Indian Navy, is claimed to be “the first Indian naval warship with almost 90 per cent indigenous content”. The ship’s keel was laid on November 20, 2006 and the ship was launched on April 19, 2010.
