Indian Coast Guard Day

On February 1st each year, India observes Indian Coast Guard Day, marking the establishment of the nation's maritime security organization in 1977. This day pays tribute to the Indian Coast Guard Force for its crucial role in safeguarding India's coastlines and upholding regulations in the country's maritime zones.

Ranked as the world's fourth-largest coast guard, the Indian Coast Guard assumes various responsibilities, including the protection of artificial islands and the rescue of fishermen. Since its inception, the ICG has experienced significant growth, boasting a fleet that exceeds 150 ships and aircraft.
