VASCO: Indian Coast Guard has got another boost to its force with the induction of the fifth in the series of a new 105M offshore patrol vessel (OPV). 

The newly inducted ‘ICGS Shaurya’ is a state-of-the-art vessel built by Goa Shipyard Ltd (GSL) using its in-house design. The ship is based at Chennai, Tamil Nadu under the operational and administrative control of Commander Coast Guard Region (East). ICGS Shaurya is commanded by Deputy Inspector General DS Chauhan and manned by 12 officers and 94 crew members.

Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan dedicated the ship to the nation at an impressive ceremony held at GSL on Saturday in presence of Director General Coast Guard Rajendra Singh, RAdm Shekhar Mital, CMD, GSL and other dignitaries.

Dharmendra Pradhan is a minister of state for Petroleum and Natural Gas with independent charge.

Significantly, this Vessel has registered excellent performance at sea during trials, clearing all trial parameters comfortably. The vessel is fitted with state-of-the-art navigation and communication equipment, sensors and machineries. 

Meanwhile, Pradhan expressed angst over, what he called as, unwarranted criticism on the armed forces of the country. 

“There must not be any country in this world where its armed forces are getting bad words,” he said.
