About Exercise Varuna:

  • The Indian and French Navies have been conducting bilateral maritime exercises since 1993. Since 2001, these exercises have been called ‘VARUNA’.

    • cross-deck operations,
    • replenishment-at-sea,
    • minesweeping,
    • anti-submarine warfare and
    • information sharing.
