The Indian Naval Academy (INA) is gearing up to build infrastructure and capabilities to meet the increase in intake in the next five years with the Phase-II expansion plans going live. The INA, a premier training establishment of Indian Navy, situated at Ezhimala in Kannur district of North Kerala's Malabar region, is on an expansion mode which will see the cadet strength eventually double in the Phase-III stage.
In an exclusive one-to-one with OneIndia, Vice Admiral Ajit Kumar P, Commandant, INA, said that current shift in focus of training in the Indian Navy mandates an officer to be able to man, operate and maintain the gen-next assets.
"To fight the future wars at the sea, we want our officers to be equipped mentally, physically and technologically. At INA, we have been giving a huge stress on tech learning with the best of systems available for the cadets," says Vice Admiral Suresh who is being part of the Indian Navy for over 33 years.
