Coastal security bill on way: Navy chief

New Delhi, Dec 3 : A coastal security bill has been drafted to ensure better coordination between the agencies working in the area, Indian Navy Chief Admiral D.K. Joshi said Tuesday.

Addressing a press conference here ahead of Navy Day Dec 4, Joshi said the coastal security situation has improved and the second phase of finetuning the mechanism is underway.

"We are constantly upgrading the infrastructure, and working towards augmentation of resources. A coastal security bill has also been drafted," Joshi said.

"The coastal security bill will further enhance multiple agency coordination and center-state coordination," he said.

The navy chief added that the second phase for enhancing coastal security will include establishment of additional radar stations and deployment of interceptors.

The revamp of India's coastal security system started post the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.
