Admiral Lanba superannuates on May 31 after a four-decade distinguished service, the release said.
His sea tenures include command of INS Kakinada, a Mine Counter-Measure Vessel, INS Himgiri, the indigenous Leander-class Frigate, INS Ranvijay, a Kashin-class Destroyer and INS Mumbai, the indigenous Delhi-class Destroyer.
He took over as the Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee, on January 1, 2017.
In the last three years as CNS, Admiral Lanba set the tone for several transitions in the operational, training and organisational philosophy of the Indian Navy.
The Mission Based Deployments introduced in June 2017 transformed the operational philosophy to deploying mission-ready ships and aircraft along critical sea lanes of communications and choke points, the Navy release said.
He also steered implementation of the New Transition Cycle which facilitated improvement in overall readiness of ships and submarines in undertaking operational tasks and Mission Based Deployments, it added.
