The Laccadive Sea lies off the southwest coast of India,
north of a line extending from the southern point of Sri
Lanka to the southernmost of the Maldive Islands, and east
of the Maldives.
The Laccadive Islands (Lakshadweep) is a Union Territory of India, which
includes Lacadive, Minicoy and Amandivi Islands.
The security of the islands and the Lakshadweep waters has
been an area of concern for the GOI considering the high
volume of international shipping, strategic location,
isolation and remoteness of the islands. Consequent upon the
approval of GOI, Police Marine Force is being established in
the UT of Lakshadweep.
Modernization of Police Force, Fire force, setting up of
Coastal Police stations, commissioning of criminal
investigation systems (CIS) and modernization of
communication equipments are the other focus areas.
Construction of the eastern side jetties in the four islands
of Amini, Minicoy, Agatti and Kavaratti has been put on fast
track. Read more at:
