Sources from Thoothukudi reported that to enhance patrolling along the southern coast in the Gulf of Mannar region and ensure better sea line communication, the Indian coast guard station at Thoothukudi is to get two more offshore patrolling vessels in the next two years.



Meanwhile when disclosing this to media persons of the new administrative building for the coast guard station, coast guard commander and Inspector General of the eastern region, Rajan Bargotra said that one more offshore patrolling vessel is to be included to add to the existing fleet strength within this year to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the services provided by the Indian coast guard to fishermen operating from Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli  and Thoothukudi districts apart from general surveillance activities.

The coast guard commander added "Yet another fast patrol vessel is planned to be based at Tuticorin station by 2020". Moreover he also said that the Indian coast guard is to set up a new aviation unit at Thoothukudi once the ongoing land acquisition process is over. Rajan Bargotra added "Once the aviation unit is set up in Thoothukudi it will cater to fixed wing operation, which will be utilized not only for surveillance but also for providing assistance to fishermen in times of emergency”.
