Vision of Indian Naval Academy
“Importance of the Indian Navy in safeguarding our vital security interests has become paramount. There can be no doubt that the Indian Navy must be the most important maritime power in this region.”
Former Prime Minister - Dr Manmohan Singh
The principal role of the Indian Naval Academy is to impart basic and orientation training to all officer entrants of the Navy and Coast Guard, other than Special Duties List officers. The aim is to develop the trainees morally, mentally, physically and to imbibe in them the high ideals of loyalty, valour and patriotism in order to provide the service with officers who are dedicated to a career of Naval Service and have potential for future development to assume the highest responsibility of leadership. The Indian Naval Academy has been developed as a national prestigious project and is the ‘Cradle for Leadership’ in the Indian Navy. It is unique in concept and design which stands out as an outstanding monument. The ab-initio training imparted at the Academy will ensure that every officer who passes out through its portals will be leaders worthy of trust and confidence that the nation has reposed in them. It will also establish bridges of friendship across the ocean by training personnel from friendly foreign countries.
The aim of the Indian Naval Academy is to prepare young men and women to be a professional officer in the navy by providing them sound education supplemented with the required professional naval training. It is intended that all officers joining the Navy will pass through this academy so that the entire officer cadre is suitably initiated into the naval way of life starting with a common controlled foundation. The academic curriculum is tailored to keep pace with the demands of modern technology. In addition, the Academy will condition the young men and women who have chosen the navy as a career with the mental and physical attributes to be able to exercise self-discipline, to perform efficiently under stress, to think and react quickly.
