Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated the submarine Optical Fibre Cable (OFC) connecting Chennai and Port Blair in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, via video conferencing. Notably, the foundation stone for this project was laid by PM Modi on 30th December, 2018 at Port Blair.
At the event, PM Modi said,” Completing the work of laying 2,300 km long cable undersea before the scheduled time is praiseworthy. Deep-sea surveys, maintaining cable quality, and laying cable using special ships are not easy”
He asserted that the optical fibre cable project, connecting Andaman & Nicobar with rest of the country is symbol of our commitment towards ease of living. “Be it online classes, tourism, banking, shopping or telemedicine, thousands of families in Andaman-Nicobar will now get its access. Tourists going to Andaman will get a huge benefit of this facility because the better net connectivity has become the first priority of any tourist destination”, the Prime Minister stated.
