    An Indian Navy team arrived yesterday on a salvage mission to repair and retrieve fishing vessels, which were damaged due to recent cyclone in Northern waters, sources said.
    A team of 81 Navy persons in 16 boats were arrived for the mission.
    At least seven boats and trawlers were damaged in the cyclone.
    Earlier, 35 Indian fishermen, with two boats in tow, were taken to the International Maritime Boundary Line and handed over to the eastern region of the Indian Coast Guard on Tuesday afternoon.
    The fishermen were reluctant to leave without all the boats that they had come in but were persuaded after their compatriots from India, and officials of the Jaffna Indian Consulate spoke to them and assured them that the boats would be safe. “We expect it to take about 3-4 days to carry out repairs on the boats,” he added.

    [h=2]Indian Navy on salvage mission[/h]An Indian Navy team will arrive today on a salvage mission to repair and retrieve fishing vessels which were damaged due to recent cyclone in Sri Lankan territorial waters, Navy Spokesman Commodore Kosala Warnakulasuriya said.

    A team of 81 Navy persons in 16 boats will arrive for the mission which will be backed by the Sri Lankan navy.

    At least seven boats and trawlers were damaged in the cyclone.

    Earlier, 35 Indian fishermen, with two boats in tow, were taken to the International Maritime Boundary Line and handed over to the eastern region of the Indian Coast Guard on Tuesday afternoon.

    The fishermen were reluctant to leave without all the boats that they had come in but were persuaded after their compatriots from India, and officials of the Jaffna Indian Consulate spoke to them and assured them that the boats would be safe. “The Sri Lankan Navy has done a commendable job in coordinating and helping out,” said the Indian High Commissioner in Sri Lanka, Ashok K. Kantha. “We expect it to take about 3-4 days to carry out repairs on the boats,” he added, a Hindu report said.

    Do the fishermen or their employers have insurance for this kind of expense?

    Sir,
    There is no insurance cover for these kind of Boats. Even if there is they dont have the money or needed documents

    Its upto the govt to recover the losses ti fishermen during natural disasters


    Besides, Some of the fishermen in southern region are migrated people who doesnt even ave ID card or any.


    Coordination between Coast Guards is very important. Helps in saving a lot of lives during Natural disasters!!
