Coast Guard academy to come up in Kerala

The minister was here to dedicate a titanium sponge plant at the Kerala Minerals and Metals Ltd at Chavara. Addressing the gathering later, he said 164 acres land for the academy had already been acquired by KINFRA, state’s infrastructure development agency.

As coastal security was a major area of concern, the role of Coast Guard had increased in recent times. It was in view this that the Defence Ministry decided to set up an academy exclusively to bring out personnel with specialised training in coastal security operations, Antony said.
