Setting up of Coast Guard Station
Government have already approved setting up of a Coast Guard station at Pipavav on the Coastline of Gujarat. There is no proposal to set up Coast Guard Station in South Gujarat at Hazira and other places.

As per the threat perception and vulnerability gap analysis conducted by the Coastal States in consultation with the Indian Coast Guard, a coastal marine police station instead of Coast Guard station has already been established at Hazira and another one approved for establishment at Dahej to function under hub & spoke concept with Coast Guard stations.

This information was given by Minister of Defence Shri AK Antony in a written reply to ShrimatiJayshreeben Patel and Shri MansukhBhai D. Vasavain Lok Sabha today.
