Defense Minister in Andaman Islands

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh left New Delhi for a two-day visit to Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) today (January 5th, 2023).

During the visit, the Union Minister is scheduled to review the operational preparedness of the Command and infrastructure development at the operational areas of the Command and outlying units.

The Minister will also visit ANC units at Campbell Bay, Carnic and Diglipur where he would be interacting with troops.

The Central government has planned to set up a Mega container terminal at the Nicobar Islands to be run by the Navy. The proposed terminal will be close to the Malacca straits the entry point of the Indian Ocean region. Industry sources said the government has put on hold Colachel transhipment terminal project which was cleared by the Union cabinet way back on 2015.
