The Priyadarshini class has a range of 2400 nm at cruise speed of 12 knots. The crew of the patrol vessels consists of 5 officers and 29 enlisted sailors. The vessels are armed with a 40 mm 60 cal Bofors Mk 3 AA. In early 1998, ICGS Amrit Kaur (225) acted as a trial platform for the 30 mm CRN 91 Naval Gun.
