    Making steady additions to its inventory, the Indian Coast Guard will boast of an impressive fleet of 200 ships and 100 aircraft by 2020, an officer said at Kolkata on Saturday.

    "We have been and will continue inducting new ships, vessels and aircraft into our inventory," Coast Guard Regional Commander (Northeast) and Inspector General K C Pande told reporters during the concluding session of a coastal security awareness campaign.

    "The vision is to have a fleet of 200 ships and 100 aircraft by 2020 and we are steadily progressing in the right direction," he said, adding that orders had been placed for more than 100 ships and aircraft.

    This will add to its fleet of over 100 ships and boats, 14 air cushion vehicles (ACVs) and over 60 aircraft including the Dornier Do 228 maritime surveillance aircraft, he added.

    Expressing concern over increased smuggling, including counterfeit Indian currency from Bangladesh, Pande said most of this takes place through the land route.

    He also admitted the existence of several vulnerable stretches in the Sunderbans and adjoining areas posed a threat to maritime security.

    "There are some vulnerable areas, we cannot say they do not exist. But we are keeping a strict vigil. We are one of the most respected Coast Guards in the world and we constantly endeavour to ensure there is no threat to our maritime security," said Pande.

    He also emphasised on the need to sensitise the people, including fishermen living in the coastal areas, on security aspects.

    "It has been our constant endeavour to integrate the fishing community into coastal security mechanism and we will continue organising awareness and medical camps to develop them as our additional eyes and ears for vigilance," added Pande.

    A welcome sign in equipping our coast guards with state of the art surveillance tech and boats, but the fact of the matter is upon acquiring these tech the INC should guarantee the safety of our coasts not only against smuggling fake indian currencies but the prevalent drug trade, not only INC should have the requisite tech to counter these but also should train its officers to be responsible, honest in their approach to tackle this menace...

    this thing may not be suitable in LTTE war smuglings, as LTTE know exact time when will INC Ship pass the patrolling area at move according to it..

    seen it TN, if the boat is damaged in its way, the LTTE used to switch off the lights and wait for arrival for assistance, if get caught by INC they were sent to local police stations and courts and their they pay fine or corruption to local officials and walk free for daily business again..

    may be this is same happening in other areas.

    i mean my direction, does INC have Jails, courts and other infra on Land other then their offices and bases?

    Indian ship yards are fully capable of building these ships at quicker pace. These are coast guard related ships like fast attack craft, patrol vessels, etc...etc... some are procured from Srilanka as well.

    In addition to that India and Japan has plans to co produce US-2 Amphibious aircraft here in India.

    I dont kow How it works. But I doubt if it really worked in the past. 26/11 was a glorious example for the underpreparedness of Indias coastal survaillence and policing.

    i think the Coast guard will hand over them to the local police and the local police registers FIR. This should be the std procedure as thesew arrests are made during peace time.

    thats true and its standard procedure, do you think it happens every where?
    but if the local police is corrupted or for the welfare of their Tamil [like in case of LTTE in TN]... is this is process is going correct in India? i think no....

    LTTE was patronised by the govt of India until they Assassinated Rajiv Ghandi. Second, Tamil people are Indians for 67 years from 1947 but were tamils from time immortal. So this becomes a delicate case of threading. Third, The LTTE except for few acts of violence in India were true freedom fighters, who unlike the pakistan based terrorists have no hatred towards India. Fourth, except for the Rajiv assassination, they never targeted Indians in Indian soil, eventhough the Indian Army damaged their fighting power considerably when the IPKF was there in SL. Fifth, Even at the height of the final war, the LTTE never unleashed any act of Violence in TN and all the support ativitie that are going on in TN are peacefull and were inline with the Ghandian principles of Non violence, except for few fanatics.

    So Yes the police letting LTTE for being Tamils is wrong, but that was a decision made at a very High level, the Cabinet of India to support them. So we cannot except the Tamil people in TN not to support the LTTE (who have Umblical connecivity with the Tamils on the west of Palk straits) in whatever ways (nonviolent) they can.

    As I have explained the reasons for the Local police letting the LTTE go in few cases of smuggling activities, Now we have a porus coastline that will be used by Anti India elements to cause disruption. So yes Your argument for the ICG to have jurisdiction on the coastal waters and have its own lock ups for the criminals it arrests is correct and is what should be happening. The ICG should be responsible for Registering the FIR and should make its own arguments in the Courts against the convicts and should lock them in central prisons once the judgement is arrived on.

    Re: Indian Coast Guard inventory to have 200 ships, 100 aircrafts by 2

    So, approx 93 surface vessels in service with 149 under construction. So by 2020 with commissioning of new crafts and decommissioning of some old craft, we are all set to achieve 200 surface assets.

    The Coast Guard operates a fleet of 38 Dornier Do 228 maritime surveillance aircraft, 9 HAL Dhruv and 18 HAL Chetak utility helicopters. Total 65 air crafts. Need to acquire 35+ (50+ considering decommissioning) in the next 6 years.

    Pretty doable, I'd say!

    I saw that film and I have also spoken with some of my friend whose relatives are fishermen. They grossly rejected that scene in the Film. This smuggling part if happens should be because of the stoppage of the natural trade that should be happening between India and SL in the Palk straits. If the normal trade is ensured, majority of the smuggling (if happens) will come down. SL and TN are natural trading partners. And trading would have been in billions if there was no Anti Tamil sentiment among the majority Sinhalese and due to which a Anti Sinhalese sentiment has sprouted in TN.

    But I feel the ICG should be responsible for convicting the smugglers and criminals they arrest and should be responsible for arguing in the courts.

    Paradip: The Indian Coast Guard on Thursday launched a coastal security awareness and medical campaign to commemorate its raising day.

    Odisha Governor S C Jamir flagged off a motor cycle rally marking the launch of the campaigns.

    A team of 32 personnel from Indian Coast Guard, Marine Police and fishing community travelling on 16 motorcycles will cover 600 km and will pass through Chilka, Gopalpur, Puri, Konark, Kaliakhana, Paradip, an official release said.

    During the campaign the team will visit fishing hamlets enroute and undertake community interaction programme. Specialised well-equipped ambulance along with doctors and para-medical staff also accompanied the campaign.

    The campaign also aimed at sensitising the fishing community and integrating them into the coastal security mechanism as "EYES and EARS", the release said.

    The campaign will be over on January 26 at the Coast Guard District Headquarters, Odisha, Paradip.

    Coast Guard Regional Commander (North East) Inspector General KC Pande and other senior officers of ICG were present at the launch.

    What happened to ICG proposal to acquire 12 medium aircrafts? The Dorniers are good but don't have the endurance. Something like Be-200 or US-2 is ideal for coast guard. Also They need a lot more of 2400 tonne OPV's (atleast 12-15) and 64-72 FPV's (300+ tone). The 35-50 tonne piddly fast boats are too short ranged to be of any use in the ocean.
