Kalvari went on a sea trial earlier on Sunday at the Mumbai harbor.

"The trial was successful. It [Kalvari] will soon be commissioned into the Indian Navy," D K Sharma said.

Kalvari is a part of Project 75, under which six submarines are to be inducted into the Indian Navy by 2020. The submarine was scheduled to have joined the Indian Navy by 2012, but the date has been moved to September this year.
