NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — India's first nuclear submarine Arihant has been successfully tested and is ready for operations, media reported Tuesday.

"It has passed all tests and in many things has surpassed our expectations. Technically the submarine can now be commissioned at any time," a senior official was quoted as saying by The Economic Times.

The tests took place off Vishakhapatnam port on the eastern coast of India. The Arihant was accompanied by the Russian rescue ship Epron.

The Arihant submarine will become India's first nuclear submarine of its own production.
