The Indian Navy inducted its indigenously built second Kalvari class diesel-electric submarine, INS Khanderi.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh commissioned the submarine in Mumbai.

“Khanderi is built at state-run Mazgaon Dock Limited and underwent rigorous sea trials for over two and a half years. All the concerns of the Navy have been addressed,” said an official of the Western Naval Command.

Key features of the submarine include a state-of-the-art technology which reduces its noise under the sea.

“It is a diesel-electric submarine which runs on battery, with a capability of firing six torpedoes. Its maximum speed is 20 nautical miles, which is a world standard for most of the attack type of submarines,” the navy official said.
