Current Events Chronology: Defense Compilation Jan-July 2014

Dear friends,

The importance of current affairs has increased in the recent years. As a result, we spend a lot of time reading and researching the newspapers and magazines. We have compiled important news and current events for the months of January to mid-July, to help the fellow aspirants prepare for the exams.

This is the Defense section of the news and events for the months of January to mid-July. We will update and cover the coming months soon.

Hope it will be helpful for the fellow aspirants in their journey to the UPSC.

Thank you for your support and appreciation.

All the material related to the current events have been placed, in a revised form in a chronological order. This will help you know about the events in a systematic order.

Here is a sample of events that the file would cover:

INS Arihant


India’s first indigenously built nuclear-powered submarine, INS Arihant will undergo sea trials, as its preliminary harbor acceptance trials are over. During the trials, all systems including its ballistic missiles, will be tested.

The Sub-surface Ballistic Missiles (SSBM) submarine would be indigenously designed, built, opertionalized and maintained. The sea trials would test the various systems in the deep sea. Once deployed, it will be the stabilizing force in the Indian ocean.

Meanwhile, the Scorpene submarines are being developed at the Mazagaon docks, and are scheduled to be inducted in 2016.


INS Arihant- India’s first indigenously built nuclear submarine is a state-of-the-art technology, capable of lurking effectively undetectably for long period. With INS Arihant inducted into the Indian navy, India will join the club of six nations with nuclear submarines carrying ballistic missiles.
