Admiral Karambir Singh is new Navy Chief

Admiral Karambir Singh on 31 May 2019 assumed charge as the 24th Chief of the Naval Staff. Admiral Singh is an alumnus of the National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla. Commissioned into the Indian Navy in July 1980, he earned his wings as a helicopter pilot in 1981 and has flown extensively on the Chetak (Alouette) and Kamov helicopters. He is also the first helicopter pilot from the Indian Navy to lead the naval armed forces. Having commanded missile corvette INS Vijaydurg, guided-missile destroyers INS Rana & INS Delhi during his almost 40-year career, he will be Navy chief till November 2021.
However, his appointment was overshadowed by a petition filed by a senior officer challenging it. Vice Adm. Bimal Verma, Chief of the Andaman and Nicobar-based tri-Service command, has approached the Armed Forces Tribunal (AFT) questioning the appointment as he was the most senior naval officer after Adm. Lanba. Early this week, the AFT, which had asked the government to submit all files related to the selection process, set July 17 as the next date of hearing as the government sought more time and allowed Adm. Singh to assume charge.
