According to India defence online the Indian Navy is all set for a major expansion of the Karwar Naval Base in the western state of Karnataka, with plans to convert it into a state-of-the-art integrated naval base on the western seaboard of India.

The Indian Navy has finished the first phase of the Karwar Naval Base expansion project and the work on the second phase will commence once the Cabinet Committee on Security gives the nod.

The Indian Navy indicated that it has ten warships based in Karwar after the completion of the first phase, and by the end of phase two, there will be roughly thirty warships berthed there along with aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines. Added to this will be an array of smaller ships, including 10 of the 80 fast-interceptor craft of Sagar Prahari Bal, the specialised force created for coastal security in India in the wake of the terror attacks.
