India-Indonesia Coordinated Patrol

The News

The 38th India-Indonesia Coordinated Patrol (IND-INDO CORPAT) between the Indian Navy Units of Andaman & Nicobar Command (ANC) and Indonesian Navy is being conducted from June 13 to 24 2022 in the Andaman Sea and Straits of Malacca.  


The 38th CORPAT is the two countries' India- Indonesia’s first post-pandemic Coordinated Patrol (CORPAT).

The Naval Component, under the aegis of HQ ANC, conducts coordinated patrols with other littoral countries of the Andaman Sea along respective Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ) to enhance regional maritime security as part of the Government of India's vision of SAGAR (Security and Growth for All in the Region).

CORPAT has been conducted along the two Navies' International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) since 2002.

This has aided in the development of mutual understanding and interoperability, as well as methods to prevent and combat illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, drug trafficking, maritime terrorism, armed robbery, and piracy, among other things.

The IND-INDO CORPAT helps to strengthen friendships across the Andaman Sea and the Malacca Straits.
