- President’s Fleet Review (PFR) is a ceremonial occasion traditionally held by the Indian Navy to showcase its prowess. The review is a grand and formal occasion when all operational naval vessels and aircrafts are spruced up in a spirit of loyalty and allegiance to the Nation and the Supreme Commander. The President’s Fleet Review is a symbolic display of a nation’s maritime capabilities and adroitness. It is meant to convey to the Commander-in-Chief and to the Nation that the Country’s maritime forces are fighting fit and ready to meet any challenge. Post-Independence, traditionally, the President, as the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces reviews the Fleet once during his tenure. After a 21-gun salute, the President embarks on the Presidential Yacht, distinguished by the Ashoka Emblem on his side and reviews all the ships by cruising past them.
- On the grand occasion of PFR 2022, the world would witness the proud display of the readiness of the Indian Navy for any battle at sea. The event would showcase the three dimensional display of operational surface warships, subsurface submarine and airborne assets in its company with the ethos of steadfastness and devotion to the country.
- The theme for this PFR is “Indian Navy – 75 Years in Service to the Nation”. Indian Navy has expanded her horizontal and vertical dimensions exponentially over the period of 75 years to ensure safety and security of international coastal borders with utmost dedication. The expansion of Indian Navy’s Blue water operation capabilities has engraved unfathomable impact in international waters.
