A Holistic Progress of Coastal Security
Following the 26/11 terror attack on Mumbai, when attackers entered the city through the sea route, a major revamp of coastal security has been attempted, ongoing initiatives galvanized and new initiatives undertaken. This was necessary given that India has a coastline of 7517 kms of which, more than 5400 kms is the length of the mainland coastline. Keeping the vast coastline safe and secure is a major responsibility undertaken by the Coast Guard, the State police and the Navy.
