On this day 90 cadets were awarded B.Tech de­grees by the chief guest Pro­fes­sor Ashish Nanda, Di­rec­tor, In­dian In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment (IIM), Ahmed­abad, at the con­vo­ca­tion cer­e­mony held at INA.

The clos­ing cer­e­mony of 27th In­dia-In­done­sian Cor­pat (Co­or­di­nated Pa­trol) was held from May 16-19, 2016.

Se­nior of­fi­cials from In­done­sia Navy as well as Em­bassy of In­dia at In­done­sia were present to re­ceive the ship. It was a his­toric mo­ment as the first wo­man IFS of­fi­cer from An­daman and Ni­co­bar Is­lands – Dr Shalia Shah, Coun­sul Gen­eral of In­dia in Medan (In­done­sia) — was present to re­ceive the Port Blair based ship. Dr Shalia Shah was born and brought up in Port Blair and is a true na­tive of these is­lands which made the re­cep­tion more spe­cial for the ship.
