Navies of Bangladesh and India undertake coordinated patrol at two-day CORPAT

New Delhi, May 23, 2022

The fourth edition of the Indian Navy-Bangladesh Navy Coordinated Patrol (CORPAT) commenced in the Northern Bay of Bengal on Sunday.

During the two-day exercise, which will conclude today, navy units of the two countries will undertake joint patrolling along the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL).

The last IN-BN CORPAT was conducted in October 2020, a press release from the Ministry of Defence said.

Two indigenously built IN Ships -- Kora, a guided-missile corvette and Sumedha, an offshore patrol vessel -- are participating in the exercise along with Bangladesh Navy Ships BNS Ali Haider and BNS Abu Ubaidah. In addition, Maritime Patrol Aircraft of both navies would also be participating in the Coordinated Patrol.

"The regular conduct of CORPATs has strengthened mutual understanding and enhanced interoperability between both the navies in countering transnational maritime threats at sea," the release added.
