Considering the coastal security of the state, the Maharashtra government today decided to allot additional 22 hectares of government land to set up National Institute of Coastal Policing (NICP) Organisation, under home ministry, at Maurje, Khardi in neighbouring Thane district.


A decision to this effect was taken in a state cabinet meeting held here, an official release here said.

It further said that to set up NICP, the Konkan Development Corporation (KDC) has already sanctioned 100 hectares of land to Union Home Ministry, along with additional 22 hectares of government land. The 122 hectares of land has been given at nominal rate of Re one per annaum for the lease of 30 years.

The construction of the building will be completed within two years and on completion, it would not only train the state police personnel free of cost but also beef up the coastal security of the state, it added.
