Will be carrying out joint exercises with Coast Guards: Army Chief


Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Monday said that the Army has plans to hold joint exercise with the Indian Coast Guard.

“We are inducting some Air Cushion Vehicles (ACVs) and since they (Coast Guard) have expertise in it, we will be carrying joint training and ultimately joint exercise along with Coast Guards on how to operate this ACVs inland and along the coastal area,” General Rawat told ANI.

He also said that the newly commissioned Indian Coast Guard Ship ICGS Veera will help the Coast Guard to monitor the maritime boundaries more effectively and will also add to their strengths.

“You are aware that Indian Coast Guard, along with Indian Navy, is responsible for maintaining maritime surveillance and ensuring that our Exclusive Economic Zone is monitored effectively,” he said. Read More
