The commissioning of the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC) next year, according to Rajnath Singh, will be a worthy tribute to India's 75th year of independence.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh praised the Indian Navy's proactive advance deployment during the Galwan standoff on Friday, saying that the move demonstrated India's desire for peace while also being prepared for any scenario.
The inauguration of the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC) next year, Rajnath Singh said, will be a fitting homage to India's 75 years of independence, calling it a source of national pride and a bright symbol of Atmanirbhar Bharat.
Rajnath stated after inspecting the IAC's construction work at the Southern Naval Command: "It was a pleasure to review the construction work of the IAC first-hand. The project was originally approved by the National Democratic Alliance government and has made significant progress in the recent past despite COVID. Commissioning of the IAC next year will be a befitting tribute to 75 years of India's independence."
He further stated that the aircraft carrier's combat capability, range, and adaptability will add tremendous capabilities to our country's defence and assist safeguard India's interests in the maritime sector.
He stated that the administration is completely committed to maintaining a strong Navy: "Yesterday, I also reviewed Project Seabird at Karwar, which will be the largest Naval Base of the Indian Navy in future, and will provide the facilities and infrastructure to support the Navy's operations in the Indian Ocean Region and beyond."
"The IAC boasts of nearly 75 percent indigenous content, from design to steel used in construction, to key weapons and sensors. DAC has also recently accorded approval for the RFP of Project 75-I under the Strategic Partnership model, which will give further fillip to the indigenous development of niche manufacturing technologies," Rajnath added.
