The Indian Coast Guard has decided to return the land acquired for setting up its station in the Veerampattinam fishing hamlet following protests of the fishermen. The fishermen feared that once the station comes up, more land would be taken and their livelihood would get affected. Commandant of the Indian Coast Guard station,  Puducherry, N Somasundaram said the UT Government had allotted 20 acres of land, including 3.5 acres on the beach front in Veerampattinam. The CG decided to find an alternative site following protests by the fishermen community and return the allotted land.
