Navy's Rajput class destroyer INS Ranjit decommissioned

New Delhi, May 6 (UNI) A Rajput class destroyer INS Ranjit was on Monday decommissioned at a solemn, yet grand ceremony at Naval Dockyard, Visakhapatnam, culminating a glorious era.
The decommissioning ceremony was attended by officers and sailors of the commissioning crew, as well as others, who have been part of Ranjit's voyage over the last 36 years, an Indian Navy Spokesperson said.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands Lieutenant Governor Admiral Devendra Kumar Joshi (Retd) was the Chief Guest for the ceremony. He was also a part of the commissioning crew.
The ceremony was graced by 16 officers and 10 sailors from the commissioning crew and 23 erstwhile Commanding Officers.
The ship, commissioned on September 15, 1983 by Captain Vishnu Bhagwat in the erstwhile USSR, has rendered yeoman service to the nation for 36 years.
The ship has been helmed by 27 commanding officers and the last commanding officer, Captain Vikram C Mehra has been in command since June 6, 2017.
The ship, since her commissioning, has sailed for 2190 days, covering a distance of over 7,43,000 nautical miles, which is equivalent to navigating around the world 35 times and 3.5 times the distance from earth to moon.
The ship has been at the forefront of major naval operations and has the distinction of serving on both Eastern and Western seaboards.
Apart from various naval operations like Op Talwar and various multinational exercises, the ship has also been a flag bearer of the Indian Navy's benign role by participating in relief operations post Tsunami in 2004 and Cyclone Hudhud in 2014.
In recognition of the service rendered by the ship to the nation, the ship was awarded Unit Citations by the Chief of Naval Staff in 2003-04 and in 2009-10.
At the sunset on Monday, the National Flag, Naval Ensign and Commissioning Pennant were lowered for one last time onboard, with a glorious era in the history of the Indian Navy coming to a nostalgic end.
Whilst the Ranjit era has come to an end in the Indian Navy, it's spirit will continue to live in the hearts of every officer and sailor, who has served onboard and her motto of Sada Rane Jayat or Ever Victorious in Battle will continue to inspire generations of Sea Warriors today and in the future, the Spokesperson added.
