GANDHIDHAM : A Coast Guard jetty constructed at the Deendayal Port- OOT Vadinar, which was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Minister of State for Defence, Shri Ajay Bhat on Friday 1st March 2024. The function was attended by DG ICG, Dy. Chairman- Deendayal Port Authority and other senior officials from various departments.

Deendayal Port Authority (DPA) developed the jetty as a deposit work at a cost of Rs. 74 crore. The project consists of an approach trestle of 190m length and jetty of 175m length and associated 2500 m2 Back-up area.

Ajay Bhat congratulated Indian Coast Gurd and all stake holders for the important achievement, and appreciated the efforts of Deendayal Port Authority for extending cooperation for providing the water front/ land and constructing the jetty.
