The association of numerous Indian companies in building the platform makes it a true representation of the 'Make in India' concept, it added.

The submarine's construction began in July 2009 and was designated as 'Yard 11878' during its construction. It was named INS Vela in May 2019 and was handed to the Indian Navy this month after extensive system, machinery and weapon trials.
