Correct Answer : Option (B) - Mormugao

Note :

Indian Navy's indigenous stealth guided-missile destroyer Mormugao went for her maiden sea sortie on the occasion of Goa Liberation day. The second indigenous stealth destroyer of the Project 15B class is planned for commissioning in mid-2022, and, according to the ministry of defence, December 19 was “perhaps the most befitting date” for the ship to be taken out for maiden sea trial as India celebrates 60 years of Goa’s liberation from Portuguese rule.
 
Mormugao, which incorporates several niche indigenous technologies, has been built at Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd (MDSL) as part of the P15B destroyers.
 
“The Indian Navy played a pivotal role in the liberation and dedicating the ship's name to the maritime state of Goa will not just enhance the bonding between the Indian Navy and the people of Goa, but also link the ship's identity permanently to the crucial role the Navy played in nation-building,” the defence ministry said in a statement.
