The Indian Coast Guard has received additional two high speed interceptor boats (C-433 and C-434) from shipbuilder Larsen & Toubro.

The vessels were delivered at the company’s Kattupalli Shipyard, near Chennai, and are part of two contracts being executed by L&T for design and construction of 54 Interceptors to Indian Coast Guard.
