It has been 12 years since the 26/11 attack. Such a date which will be known for the bravery of Indian soldiers, but more than that for the slander and deficiencies that happened at that time. Weak information, weak cohesion, weak transport, lack of coordination, media coming out of news through terrorists getting information… and what not? There were many such shortcomings in the country because India had not seen a bigger terrorist attack than this. But today India is completely ready. It has eyes of space, security, communication. Overall, India is capable of fighting terrorists and giving a befitting reply.Maritime agencies and police were given additional freedom and responsibility immediately after 26/11. They were allowed to buy ships, aircraft and boats from themselves. Coastal radars were installed. Automatic Identification System (AIS) was installed along the shore and on the ports. National Command Control and Communication Network or NC3I, Joint Operations Centers, Information Fusion Center was created. The Coastal Police was formed. So that fishermen ships and boats can be monitored in all the states.
After the 26/11 attacks, the Navy increased its coordination with the Coast Guard and other agencies. In every coastal state, a security exercise named ‘Sagar Kavach’ has been started with different agencies. At the Center, the National Committee for Strengthening Maritime and Coastal Security coordinates between the Navy and the Coast Guard. Now the Navy and the Coast Guard have been told a standard operating procedure, what to do immediately if something like this happens again.
