Admiral R. Hari Kumar on Tuesday took over as the new Indian Navy chief from the outgoing chief, Admiral Karambir Singh, who retired after a career spanning over 41 years in service.

“It is a matter of great honour for me to take charge as the navy chief. The Indian Navy’s focus is on our national maritime interests and challenges,” Admiral Kumar said after reviewing a guard of honour on the South Block lawns.
