    A good move to bolster the surveillance over the Bay and Sunderbans in peace and war.

    Missile in Sagar Island will add to teeth to the defence system of the ENC.

    Good initiative by IN.

    We also need to deploy UAV in A&N Island.

    THe airfield in Behala was developed by the british as a airforce base during WW-2, later used to be the Behala flying club - which went out of business in the 1980s. Since then the airport has seen various plans and proposals including cheap airlines flights, helo flights, a new flying club etc. The Navy plans are the latest in a series of plans.

    You did not notice the airfield since it is tucked away even from the subsidiary road that takes off from the DH road.
