Laying down its task as an armed force furthering Indian security interests, the Navy today released its revised Maritime Doctrine that provides the fundamentals for readiness and response planning.

Outgoing Navy chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta, released the 2009 edition of the doctrine that would be a "service to enhance awareness about India's maritime environment and interests, and provide the fundamentals for readiness and response planning," a Navy spokesperson said.

The capstone document was first published in 2004 to provide a common understanding of universally applicable maritime concepts, not only for the uniformed fraternity but also for the public at large.

"This revision became necessitated, on account of the rapidly changing geostrategic environment, evolving operational complexities and transformational changes sweeping the maritime domain," a press note added.

"Since doctrines evolve over time, the present edition maintains its temporal relevance, addressing the tenets of contemporary maritime thought, with emphasis on the Indian maritime environment," it said.

The doctrine focuses on concepts as well as application of maritime power and is the primary document from which other naval doctrines flow.

"With increased emphasis on maritime affairs, the revised doctrine would serve to enhance awareness about India's maritime environment and interests, and provide the fundamentals for readiness and response planning", the spokesperson said.
