Kochi (PTI): The Indian Navy will undergo infrastructural development in the next few years, Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Sureesh Mehta has said.

Addressing a ceremonial parade at the Naval Base here on Tuesday, he said the Indian Navy was getting the much needed “boost” in terms of advanced ships, submarines and aircraft.

Navy had taken steps for procurement of an aircraft carrier, new helicopters and the MIG-29, which would be inducted into the force within four years, the Admiral said.

On the infrastructural front, Admiral Mehta said the Navy had commissioned the Indian Naval Academy at Ezhimala in Kerala and the Naval Base at Karwar in Karnataka.

He exhorted the naval sailors to ensure “good character, discipline and hard work.”

With the advancement in technology, the newcomers should concentrate in learning these technologies including their maintenance, he said.

The Navy chief, who will retire from service on August 31, was on a farewell visit to the Command.
