The keel of the INS Mysore was laid down in February 1991 and launched on 4 June, 1993. Sea trials began in the Arabian Sea in March 1999, and it was commissioned on 2 June, 1999 by Shri.Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The commissioning CO of INS Mysore was Captain Rajiv Dhamdhere.

INS Mysore alone with INS Ranvir were anchored just outside Sri Lankan territorial waters to provide security for the Indian prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, and other high ranking officials at the 15th SAARC summit. [ [ 2 Indian warships anchored near SL] ]

This ship is the successor to another ship of the same name (formerly the HMS Nigeria). HMS Nigeria was British Fiji class cruiser that served the Indian Navy from 1957 to 1985.
