Indian coastlines have been repeatedly attacked by the external forces. Indian Navy will create a new force called the Sagar Prahari Bal SPB to protect Naval bases and border the coastline areas. The SPB will comprise of 1000 personnel and will have 80 fast interception crafts for sea front patrolling.

The Indian Coast Guard is the fourth Armed force of India created to guard Republic of India s vast coastline. The Indian Coast Guard s structure is similar to the other Para Military Forces of India such as the Border Security Force BSF and the Central Industrial Security Force CISF which are all constituted as Armed Forces of India so is the Indian Coast Guard , wherein the Armed Force means a Force which is authorised by the Government to Handle and use Arms in the legal discharge of their duties. It was created on 18 August 1978 as an independent entity as per the Coast Guard Act. Its primary objective is to guard India s vast coastline and operates under the effective control of the Ministry of Defense. The coast guard works closely with the Indian Navy and the Indian Customs Department, Fisheries department and the Police. .It generally headed by a naval officer of the rank of Vice-Admiral. India s coast guard has a large number of fast craft including hovercrafts and hydrofoils. They patrol the seas and river mouths. The coast guard has performed a number of commendable tasks of rescuing distressed personnel. It has also apprehended pirates on high seas and cleaned up oil spills. Heavy patrolling of sensitive areas such as Gujarat, West Bengal and Mumbai have resulted in the nabbing of a large number of smugglers and illegal immigrants.
