Chief of the Naval Staff

Admiral RK Dhowan is an alumnus of the National Defence Academy, the Defence Services Staff College and the Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island, USA. His illustrious career began with being adjudged the ‘Best Cadet’ and winning of the coveted ‘Telescope’ during his sea training onboard INS Delhi. He was commissioned in the Navy on 01st Jan 1975 and went on to bag the ‘Sword of Honour’ for his course. Consequent to earning his Watchkeeping Certificate on the erstwhile Delhi (the legendary Cruiser of the Indian Navy), his first tryst with navigation came when he was appointed the commissioning navigator of the minesweeper, Bhavnagar. He was baptised in the art of navigation when, as a young Lieutenant armed with a sextant and the keen eyes of an enthusiastic watchkeeper, he sailed the Bhavnagar from the port of Riga in the Baltic Sea to the shores of Mumbai. His passion for working in the bridge of a ship culminated in his specialising in Navigation and Direction. Post-specialization, he went on to navigate Talwar and Ganga, two frontline ships of the Indian Navy’s Western Fleet. With the induction of the Sea Harrier jump-jets into the Navy, he was selected to undergo the Sea Harrier Direction Course at Yeovilton, UK. His tenures at Indian Naval Air Squadron 300 and the aircraft carrier Vikrant shaped the future of direction specialisation in the Navy. Important staff assignments held by him at Naval Headquarters during his illustrious career include Deputy Director Naval Operations, Joint Director Naval Plans, Assistant Chief of the Naval Staff (Policy and Plans) and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff, Integrated Headquarters, Ministry of Defence (Navy). The Admiral has commanded three frontline warships of the Western Fleet - the missile corvette Khukri, the guided missile destroyer Ranjit and the indigenous guided missile destroyer Delhi. He also had the proud privilege of commanding the Eastern Fleet as Flag Officer Commanding Eastern Fleet. Besides serving as Indian Naval Advisor at the High Commission of India, London, he has also served as Chief Staff Officer (Operations) of the Western Naval Command (based at Mumbai) and the Chief of Staff at Headquarters Eastern Naval Command (based at Visakhapatnam) and subsequently had the distinction of commanding his alma mater, the National Defence Academy, as the Commandant. The Admiral assumed charge as the Vice Chief of the Naval Staff in Aug 11 and was promoted to be the 22nd Chief of the Naval Staff on 17 Apr 14.

During the International Fleet Review, the navies of the world will come together at Visakhapatnam to strengthen bridges of friendship. We may be separated by geography, but we are certainly united through oceans. The visiting navies will also have the opportunity to display their professional skills as they may sail together for exercises to increase mutual co-operation and interoperability, with the underlying theme of keeping the global commons safe and secure in the 21st century.
