About INS Shivaji

Indian Naval Ship Shivaji had its humble origin as replacement for the "Strokers" Training School at HMIS Dalhousie located at Naval Dockyard at Bombay. Commissioned by the then Governor of Bombay, Sir John Colville as HMIS Shivaji on 15th February 1945. It bacame INS Shivaji on 26th January 1950. Since then INS Shivaji has dynamically evolved into a premiere techincal training institution of the Navy keeping pace with the fast changing technology in all facets of marine engineering, 

To provide scope for further expansion and to isolate the trainee sailors from the country's politics the Royal Indian Navy decided to shift the training exstablishment to a quiter place. While the British were on lookout for a suitable location, coincidentally an air accident took place in the Sahyadri Ranges. Those who came to investigate the accident found more than what they sought. Sandwiched between a sheer vertical rock face, covering the entire height of the hill range (Tiger's Leap) on one side and another important imposing rock formation (Duke's Nose or Nagphani) on the other side, was a flat piece of land, its tranquility and beauty held one spell bound, to be disrupted only by the occassional cry of an infant from nearby village, Kurwande. Event today this piece of land holds that bit of magic to any visitor.

This place has the right combination of all the factors that contribute for a good training establishment. It has a salubrious climate - a natural outcome of its location up in the hills and wide open spaces with imposing terrain for a variety of outdoor adventure activities. It was dar enough from Bombay and Pune to isolate it from the maddening crowds and some of the politically explosive occurences. No wonder this spot was immediately finalised for the establishment by Commander Nott, Chief of Staff to Flag Officer, Bombay Lieutanant Commander John Coverdale Smith, the officer - in - charge of the Mechanical Training Establishment, who went on the become the first Commanding Officer of HMIS Shivaji.
