NEW DELHI, June 2 (Xinhua) -- India's second Scorpene-class submarine is ready for surface sea trials, defense officials said Friday.

"These Scorpene class submarines will not only add to our future naval power and strengthen defence but also make our ocean safe and secure," India's Defense Minister Arun Jaitley said.

The first Scorpene-class submarine INS Kalvari has already undergone various trials and is expected to be inducted into the Indian navy later this year.

Reports said six Scorpene-class submarines are being built under Project 75 of the Indian navy.
