On 4th December, India will celebrate the day as Indian Navy Day. On this special day, Indians will honour the achievements and role of our Navy officers who took the charge to spread the peace and security in the country.

This special day is celebrated on 4th December because on this day Operation Trident was launched during the 1970 war against Pakistan.

Under this operation, Indian Navy attacked Pakistan’s naval headquarter in Karachi. During the attack, the Navy used the three Vidyut-class missile boats, two anti-submarine vehicles and a tanker.
