Recently, the Naval Senior Officers’ Conference concluded and looked at three dominant themes engrossing Navy strategists—safety and consciousness, building stronger intellectual and theoretical foundation, and accelerating the process-of change.

  1. 1. Operating in a technologically complex and expensive equipment intensive environment, the Navy is actively working to raise the consciousness of its staff to safeguard personnel, resources, and equipment. Several recent mishaps because of lack of maintenance, the Navy introduced several initiatives to improve the standards of operators, maintainers, or logistic personnel to arrest compliance and neglect.

  2. 2. The Navy understands that to build a resurgent Navy that can stand for decades needs a hundred years of build-up on a strong architecture that would support the next generation ships. Hence, it has created three “foundation” documents to create a process and continuity of thinking. The “Maritime Doctrine” released in 2004 was a “doctrinal primer,” the “Maritime Capability Perspective Plan” is a classified blueprint of the force-level structure of the Navy for the next decade and a half, and the “Freedom of the Seas: India 's Maritime Strategy” is another classified document to be released Oct 17 and form the basis of the 21st Century Navy.

3. The Parivartan Project enunciates and guides the overall direction and orientation to accelerate the process-of-change and includes three guidance documents. The overarching “Vision Statement of the Indian Navy,” the introductory-primer “What Does Transformation Mean for the Indian Navy?” and the most contemporary “Strategic Guidance for Transformation” will empower Naval officers to embrace change through “transformation” guided by “doctrines and concepts.”

The Navy sees these changes as structural and architectural necessities that will provide a firm grounding to the evolution of the Navy
