How India’s Looking After Its Maritime Security Domain

NEW DELHI: For a country like India that has a long coastline (about 11,000 km, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep included), maritime security is as important as guarding the nation’s land borders. The Mumbai terror attacks of 2008, where the terrorists took the sea route to reach India, exposed gaps in coastal security and served as a wake-up call. But the government’s focus hasn’t remained confined to the security aspect; economics too has been factored in. In this episode of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale takes a closer look at what it takes to manage maritime security while leveraging the domain’s economic potential.
