The President of India, Her Excellency, Smt Pratibha Devisingh Patil, the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, will review the Indian Fleet  comprising ships of the Indian Navy, the Coast Guard, the Merchant Marine and the Sea Cadet Corps at Mumbai on 20 December 2011

In this tradition inherited from the Royal Navy, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces reviews the Indian Fleet once during his or her tenure in office. However, three Presidents, namely Dr Zakir Hussain (1967-69), Shri N Sanjiva Reddy (1977-82) and Dr Shankar Dayal Sharma (1992-97) did not review the Fleet during their tenure; and on two occasions reviews were carried out by other personages – by the Shah of Iran in 1956 and by the Defence Minister Shri YB Chavan in 1964. Dr. Rajendra Prasad reviewed independent India’s Fleet for the first time on 10 October 1953. In all, nine fleet reviews have taken place to date including an International Fleet Review in 2001 at Mumbai; the most recent being the President’s Fleet Review in 2006 by the President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam at Visakhapatnam.
