The air­craft car­ri­er will be sta­tioned at the INS Kadam­ba after it is hand­ed over to the Indi­an Navy and that prepa­ra­tions are under­way in full swing to house INS Vikra­ma­ditya. The car­ri­er will be the Navy’s sec­ond air­craft car­ri­er and the largest ship in the Indi­an Navy’s inven­to­ry. The Naval Sta­tion at Kar­war will also become a major air­base with a major­i­ty of the navy’s air pow­er based there.

INS Kadam­ba is one of the biggest naval sta­tions not just in India but entire Asia. Expan­sion of the base is cur­rent­ly under way. The Phase I expan­sion of the naval base has been com­plet­ed and Phase II Alpha expan­sion is cur­rent­ly under way. Phase II would allow berthing of upto 32 war­ships from the cur­rent capac­i­ty of 22 war­ships.

Work for the sec­ond phase of the base has already begun, and this is expect­ed to cre­ate large-scale employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties for the local youth. In the next 10 years, a num­ber of infra­struc­ture projects are expect­ed to come up for con­struc­tion in Kar­war and Ankola.The cost of com­ple­tion of the sec­ond phase will not be less than Rs 1,25,000 crore, which will be five times the amount spent in the first phase.
