The staff deployed at S.G. is basically involved in Coastal patrolling. The area covers the entire coastal belt falling in its jurisdiction. The S.G. units are equipped with CPCs to effectively carry out coastal patrolling at short notice. As these boats required very little draft, it is possible to sail from anywhere. These CPCs used for coastal patrolling can undertake sorties for a period of 8-10 hours before returning to the base for refuelling.
