The Supreme Court has banned the breaking of the warship INS Virat, which has retired from the Army. The court said that it should be kept as it is now. The court has also issued notices to the buyers. The petition filed in the Supreme Court said that one group wanted to protect it for the future and the buyer was offered Rs 100 crore.

Application to the Supreme Court to convert the ship into a museum

The petitioner has said that it should be converted into a museum rather than demolished. The aircraft, capable of flying aircraft, was inducted into the Indian Navy in 1987. He was drafted from the Navy in 2017. A group then bought it at auction for Rs 38.54 crore. The ship was later sent to the Alang shipbreaking yard in Gujarat. Now the Supreme Court has banned it from breaking.

The Maharashtra government sent a proposal to the Center to protect Virat

In December last year, the Maharashtra government sent a proposal to the Center to protect the ship INS Virat, which had retired. Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi had written a letter to the Defense Ministry on the matter. The Ministry of Defense had sought NOC for this. Chaturvedi said Maharashtra would be happy to defend this historic warship. He said that it was a matter of great sorrow and concern that the work of transforming INS Virat into a wreckage has already started in Alang, Gujarat.
