The Decom­mis­sion­ing cer­e­mo­ny held at Naval Dock­yard, Mum­bai and was attend­ed by ex-Com­mand­ing Offi­cers of the ship as well as senior offi­cers of the West­ern Naval Com­mand.

The last broad beam Lean­der class frigate built by the Portsmouth Dock­yard, HMS Androm­e­da (the eighth bear­ing pen­nant num­ber F 57) had seen much action includ­ing the Falk­lands war when it was deployed on escort duty, and the ‘Armil­la Patrol’ in the escort of oil tankers dur­ing the Iran-Iraq war.

After it retired from the Roy­al Navy in 1994, the ship got a new lease of life as INS Krish­na when it was induct­ed into the Indi­an Navy in 1995 to train young cadets. The name Krish­na is one of great depth and mean­ing. INS Krish­na has been the alma mater for more than 1,300 offi­cers of the Indi­an Navy who gained their sea legs serv­ing aboard her. The ship has clocked about 3,23,750 nau­ti­cal miles dur­ing its voy­ages around the world as a cadets’ train­ing ship, and has vis­it­ed about 32 ports in 23 coun­tries in all. The ship had the capac­i­ty to train about 80 cadets.

INS Krishna’s involve­ment in thwart­ing pira­cy in the East­ern Ara­bi­an Sea last year was a proof of its agili­ty. Com­man­der Varun Singh, a marine com­man­do who is the recip­i­ent of the Shau­rya Chakra has been bestowed with the hon­our of decom­mis­sion­ing the ship.
