  • The Indian Navy's annual Commanders Conference is a crucial event that brings together Naval Commanders to discuss strategic, operational, and administrative issues related to maritime security. 
  • The conference is held against the backdrop of emerging geopolitical dynamics, regional challenges and the current volatile maritime security situation of the region. It plays an important role in shaping the future course of the Indian Navy.

  • During the conference the Chief of Defense Staff, along with the Chiefs of Staff of the Indian Army and Indian Air Force, along with Naval Commanders will also discuss the convergence of the three services in the light of the common national security environment. 
  • They will explore ways to enhance tri-service synergy and readiness to safeguard the nation and national interests of India.
  • The conference's inaugural session will see the Hon’ble Raksha Mantri embark on a sea mission to witness the Indian Navy’s ability to conduct ‘twin carrier operations' with both aircraft carriers. This will serve as a demonstration of the Indian Navy's operational capabilities.
