Anything that threatens the growth of maritime enterprise almost by definition, threatens prosperity and security. The maintenance of order at sea is therefore crucial for all maritime states. India by virtue of its geography, size, large Exclusive Economic Zone, growing economy and maritime capabilities has played an important role in preserving order at sea. It has taken steps to improve co-operation with its maritime neighbours. These small but potent confidence building measures have enhanced regional security. This study investigates the risks and tensions in the maritime area from Makaran Coast in the West to Malacca Strait in the East and formulates a framework for naval confidence building and co-operative management of the security environment among India’s maritime littorals.
