Indian Navy concludes exercise 'Sagar Kavach'


NEW DELHI (PTI): Seeking to enhance coordination between agencies involved in the country’s coastal and maritime security, the Indian Navy has completed a two-day exercise – Sagar Kavach – off the coast of Goa and Maharashtra.

“The exercise was a drill for all the stake holders in maritime security. It was a periodic exercise aimed at improving coordination between Navy, Coast Guard, customs, port authorities and marine police,” an Indian Navy official said here.

Navy and Coast Guards participated in the exercise with ships, aircraft and ground forces, while other agencies put forward their required resources to ensure a foolproof coordination.

“Such exercises are conducted every few months. The idea is to hold it with two neighbouring states to find out the loopholes and plug them and ensure a smooth coordination between them,” the official said.

The latest exercise, which concluded Thursday, was conducted under the overall command of newly appointed Western Naval Commander Vice-Admiral DK Joshi.
