INS Satavahana was commissioned on 21 Dec 1974. It is named after the Satavahana dynasty that ruled peninsular India from 184 BC to 300 AD. Their reign extended from the Vindhyas to the Travancore hills and from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal. In this period Indian sail ships ventured to the far eastern islands of Katah (Malaysia), Karpura (Camphor Islands), Suvarna (Sumatra), and other islands of the Indonesian archipelago. The crest of the establishment contains the motif from an old Satavahana coin.

An integrated type training establishment was set up for the purpose of training officers and sailors for ships and submarines of Soviet origin on 11 March 1974. The establishment was later named INS Satavahana and commissioned on 21 Dec 1974. This premier training establishment derived its name from the great Satavahana dynasty, which ruled the whole of the Deccan and a large portion of north India for four and a half centuries from about 230 BC.
