The Naval Officers’ Institute (NOI) is a Service Club situated in a picturesque location along the back waters of Wellingdon Island, Katari Bagh, Naval Base, Kochi. The Institute was set up with the aim to provide sports and recreational facilities mainly for the officers of the Navy (including officers of the Army and the Air Force) on active service and those placed on the retired list in and around Kochi Area.
Some of the user friendly facilities offered at the Institute are Catering, Bars, a Holiday Home, Designated Party Areas, a Sports Complex, Ayurvedic Spa, Card Room etc.
For the benefit of children and book lovers, the Institute provides an air-conditioned library at the Institute main building. Our Kochi franchise, Granthapura, has bagged the prestigious contract to manage the library facility. The tie up has come about on account of the personal interest taken by Vice Admiral Satish Soni, Flag Officer Commanding in Chief, Southern Naval Command, based on inputs from JustBooks Kochi library.
The new library at Naval Officers Institute was formally inaugurated yesterday. Visitors to the library were impressed by the display and the services being offered.
