About Indian Coast Guard:Emergence of the Coast Guard in India on 01 Feb 1977 being a new service was the outcome of an awareness that had been growing for a while now in the Government regarding the requirement to enforce National Laws within the waters under national jurisdiction and be certain safety of life and property at sea. It was also considered desirable that these law enforcement responsibilities should be undertaken through a service suitably equipped and modelled on the Coast Guards of advanced nations like USA, UK etc leaving the Navy to exercise the fleet for its wartime role.
A committee was, therefore, constituted in Sep 1974 with Mr KF Rustamji as its chairman to review the challenge of seaborne smuggling and to discover the issue of setting up a Coast Guard brand of organization. This committee recommended the establishing of causing Coast Guard Service patterned on the Navy for general superintendence and policing of our seas in peace time under administrative cover of the Ministry of Defence. The Maritime Zones of India Act was passed on 25 Aug 1976. Under this Act, India claimed 2.01 million sq km of sea area in which she has the exclusive rights for exploration and exploitation of resources, both living and non-living at sea. Following this a Cabinet decision was taken that can be used an interim Coast Guard Organization originated on 01 Feb 1977.
The Coast Guard in its present shape was formally inaugurated on 18 Aug 1978 as an independent armed force of a given union with the enactment of the Coast Guard Act 1978 from the Parliament because of its motto as `VAYAM RAKSHAMAH; which means `WE PROTECT'.
