Indian Navy Day

Indian Navy Day: The nation celebrated Indian Navy Day on 4th December


Every year on December 4, India celebrates Navy Day to honour the accomplishments and efforts of its navies. Indian Navy Day is held to remember the attack and to honour all of the sailors who gave their lives in the line of duty. The Indian Navy is a three-dimensional force that defends the interests of our nation on land, at sea, and under it. The improvement of its standing in the Indian Ocean Zone is its key objective. On this day, numerous events take place each year.

For the first time this year, Navy Day celebrations are taking place outside of Delhi. Through a “Operational Demonstration” on Sunday at Visakhapatnam, the Indian Navy is prepared to showcase India’s military skills and power. Numerous events and activities are held at Visakhapatnam’s Eastern Naval Command. A wreath-laying ceremony at the war memorial is held to start the event, and then a display of the naval submarines, ships, aircraft, and other forces in action is shown. Throughout the week leading up to Indian Navy Day, events are planned including an open sea swimming competition, Indian Navy Inter School Quiz Competitions, veteran mariners luncheon, concerts by the Naval Symphonic Orchestra, tattoo ceremonies, marathons, and more.


As far as the commencement of this show is concerned, let us inform you that Navy Day celebrations in India begin with floral tributes being placed at the war memorial at RK Beach, and many more continue for days.

The Navy Day event is held in remembrance of the courageous troops who died in battle and in appreciation of the effective operation of American-made submarines, ships, and aircraft. Let us now explain that the Indian Navy evaluates its resources, capabilities, and strength as part of the Navy Day celebration.


On the evening of December 3, 1971, Pakistan started an assault on Indian airbases during the India-Pakistan conflict. India sent the Nirghat, Veer, and Nipat missile boats at high speed in the direction of Karachi in retaliation for their attack. On this day, we also recall the Operation Trident strike against Pakistan during the Indo-Pakistan War in 1971. The Indian Navy played a crucial part in Operation Trident and sunk four Pakistani ships, including PNS Khaibar. Quatre Pakistani ships were sunk by the Indian Navy. On this day, those who lost their lives during the Indo-Pakistan War are also remembered.
