INS Shivalik, India's first indigenous stealth frigate, and the latest induction into the Indian Navy, arrived at Visakhapatnam on Tuesday after being commissioned at Mazagon Docks Limited, Mumbai by the Union Defence Minister A K Antony in April last year.

INS Shivalik, which will now form part of the Eastern fleet under the Eastern Naval Command, was accorded a warm reception by senior officers of the command and families of the crew on its arrival at Visakhapatnam.

The ship also boasts of a Total Atmospheric Control System providing total defence against nuclear, biological and chemical attack.
