India’s first Indigenous Aircraft Carrier to be commissioned next year says defence minister

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said that India’s first Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC) will be commissioned next year and its combat capability, reach, and versatility will add formidable capabilities in the country’s defence. 

In a statement to media after visiting the IAC at Ernakulam wharf of the Cochin port to review its construction progress, Singh described it as India’s pride and a bright example of Atmanirbhar Bharat. 

“The project was originally approved by the NDA government and has made significant progress in recent past despite COVID. Commissioning of the IAC next year will be a befitting tribute to 75 years of India’s independence,” Singh said in a statement. 

The defence minister said that it was a pleasure to review first-hand, the work being done on the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier. He reviewed this Project named ‘Seabird’ at Karwar.  

Project Seabird will be the largest naval base of the Indian Navy in the future and will provide the facilities and infrastructure to support the Navy’s operations in the Indian Ocean Region and beyond. Singh said that the government is completely committed to a strong navy and these two projects are examples of its unwavering focus.
