Welcome to INS Abhimanyu International Alumni Portal

INS Abhimanyu (name symbolising the elite fighter of the epic Mahabharta) was set up in 1974 as the premiere Chariot base. The unit grew in stature and was commissioned on 01 May 1980. With greater emphasis on low intensity conflict and unconventional warfare, the emphasis gradually shifted on special operations. The Indian Marine Special Force (IMSF) was raised in 1987 and co located with INS Abhimanyu. The acronym was changed to Marine Commandos Force (MCF) to give an element of individuality. The name MARCOS is struck thereafter.
