The Indi­an Navy had shown exem­plary courage in con­trol­ling the men­ace of pira­cy in the Indi­an ocean in the last two years. Navy per­son­nel were award­ed the President’s Gal­lantry and Non-Gal­lantry awards at a naval investi­ture cer­e­mo­ny held at the East­ern Naval Com­mand.

The chief of Naval Staff said, “The men­ace of pira­cy had come down to a large extent in the Indi­an ocean, par­tic­u­lar­ly at the Lak­shad­weep islands from 2010 due to the mea­sures ini­ti­at­ed by the navy on anti-pira­cy oper­a­tions,”. He said the naval ships and the men had inter­cept­ed sev­er­al pirate trawlers and moth­er ships near the Lak­shad­weep coast. “At present there was no pira­cy prob­lems in the Indi­an ocean due to steps ini­ti­at­ed by the Indi­an navy,” he said.

The impor­tance of the East­ern Naval Com­mand has increased man­i­fold and many projects were com­ing to the East­ern naval com­mand. Under project 17, INS Shiv­a­lik, INS Sat­pu­ra, had already com­mis­sioned and INS Sayadri will be com­mis­sioned soon. Ear­li­er, the Naval Chief took the salute at a parade com­pris­ing 24 pla­toons and inspect­ed a 50 men armed guard and reviewed the pla­toons of naval per­son­nel drawn from var­i­ous ships and estab­lish­ments of the ENC.

Flag Offi­cer Com­mand­ing-in Chief, East­ern Naval Com­mand Vice-Admi­ral Anil Chopra, Flag Offi­cers, Com­mand­ing Offi­cers of var­i­ous ships and estab­lish­ments and a large num­ber of ser­vice and civil­ian per­son­nel and their fam­i­lies attend­ed the func­tion.
