A spectacular Passing Out Parade (POP) of the third batch of Agniveers (02/2023) was held at INS Chilka, Odisha on 15 Mar 24. A total of 2,630 Agniveers including 396 women Agniveers passed out in a post sunset ceremony reviewed by Adm R Hari Kumar, Chief of the Naval Staff. V Adm V Srinivas, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Southern Naval Command was the conducting officer. Shri Sudarshan Sahoo, the master sculptor and recipient of Padma Shri and Padma Vibhusan was the Guest of Honour for the event. Distinguished sports personalities and Arjuna awardee M Suranjay Singh, MCPO I (PT) and various achiever veterans were present for the POP. This momentous event was also witnessed by proud family members of the passing out course. The POP marks the culmination of 16 weeks of ab-initio Naval training and the beginning of their new voyage in the Indian Navy.

The CNS congratulated the trainees on the parade for their impeccable turnout, good military bearing and smart drill. He highlighted that new challenges are emerging from the global security scenario and hence the training acquired should be well utilised to achieve the desired objectives. He impressed upon the Agniveers to hone their skills, be technologically aware and develop a strong foundation of knowledge, willingness to learn and commitment to perform in their respective fields. He also urged them to uphold the Navy’s core values of Duty, Honour and Courage while serving the nation with strength and honour. The Reviewing Officer expressed his appreciation to the parents of Agniveers acknowledging their contribution to the country.
