    NEW DELHI - A major joint exercise off India's Arabian Sea coast is intended to strengthen vigilance against terrorists who might try to infiltrate the country from the sea.

    The Indian Coast Guard will conduct the joint coastal security exercise April 15-16 along the coast of Gujarat, Daman and Diu, according to an official Coast Guard news release. The Indian Navy, Coastal Police and other Indian security agencies also will participate.

    The exercise will include mock drills to test the security forces' joint response to offensive actions.

    The terrorists who staged the Nov. 26, 2008, attacks in Mumbai, India, arrived by sea, and since the incident, planners here have put top priority on strengthening maritime security. India has established regular, high-level reviews of its coastal security.

    Weapons, vessels and other equipment have been purchased on a fast-track basis for the Coast Guard, which will buy 30 helicopters, 20 Fast Interceptor boats, 10 Fast Track Patrol vessels and five Offshore vessels.

    Indeed a good move.these type of exercises help's the the force to renew their option and learn new tactics.these simulated scenario's are particularly aimed to make sure the forces are at their best and their reflex to act in tough situation remains intact all time.

    I would call it a good move, We need to avert the terror attacks emerging from Sea, no more terror attacks must happen in our country
