The Royal Indian Naval Mutiny that started on 18th February, 1946 is also known as ‘Naval Revolt”, or ‘Indian Navy Revolt of 1946”.

The British Government put the Azad Hind Fauj officers on trial. While the trial was going on there was a general upsurge in the country.

The hope of the Azad Hind Fauj did not come true, but it nevertheless raised high hopes in the minds of many Indians. Even the army of British India was inspired by the ideals of the Azad Hind Fauj.

The first expression was the naval revolt of the junior officers and Indian workers in the Indian navy of Talwar ship of Bombay (now Mumbai) in 18th February, 1946.

The Royal Indian Naval Mutiny was a heroic struggle of 20,000 mutineers. People everywhere demanded the INA officers to be freed. The Calcutta (now Kolkata) students’ strikes of November 1945 were particularly serious. In February 1946, there were strikers in Calcutta and Bombay in support of the Bombay naval strike and in demands for the release of the INA officers. In face of such an upsurge the government thought it wise to release the Azad Hind Fauj officers.
