New Delhi: The long-delayed aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya will be inducted into Indian Navy by Defence Minister A K Antony during his Russia visit slated between November 15-17.




After a delay of around five years, 45,000-tonne aircraft carrier is expected to be handed over to the Navy on November 15 in Russia, where it is presently undergoing refit.  

“The Defence Minister is expected to induct the warship into the Indian Navy during his visit for the Indo-Russian Inter-Governmental Commission for Military and Technical Cooperation meeting now expected to be held in November,” sources said here.

The visit was earlier scheduled to take place in the third week of October but was put off by the Ministry.
