The fifth of the Scorpene-class submarines — Vagir — would be commissioned on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and ahead of the Republic Day festivities.

The submarine is a part of the Project-75 which involves the Scorpene or the Kalvari-class diesel-electric attack submarines by the Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) in Mumbai with French collaboration.

Admiral R Hari Kumar, the Chief of Naval Staff, will be the chief guest of the commissioning ceremony which will be held at the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai coinciding with ‘Parakram Diwas’, the 126th birth anniversary of Netaji. So far, four submarines of the Scorpene-class — INS Kalvari, INS Khanderi, INS Karanj and INS Vela — have been commissioned.
