Indian Naval Ship Agrani, was commissioned into the #IndianNavy on 18 September 1965. A premier training institution, INS Agrani is mandated to impart training to senior sailors who form the junior to mid management levels of the enlisted men’s hierarchy in the Navy. The unit conducts 10 batches of PO Leadership and CPO Management Courses per year. In addition, the unit also functions as depot ship for all personnel posted at Coimbatore and provides administrative and logistic support to the Naval Wing of Defence Services Staff College, Naval Selection Board, Aircraft and Engine Handling Unit and Naval Shooting Team (NST). The name ‘Agrani’ in Sanskrit means ‘one who leads’ and signifies its role as a leadership training establishment for sailors. The crest design depicts the constellation of Ursa Major, pointing towards Polaris, prominent in Golden colour against a clear Blue sky and sinuous bands in White and Blue at the bottom representing the sea. The motto of the training establishment in Sanskrit ‘Kartavyadeva Garavam’ means, ‘Duty gives Pride’.
