Increased Budgets for India’s Deep Ocean Mission

India has allocated over US$80 million to India's deep ocean expedition, which aims to investigate huge marine life and non-living resources.

The Deep Ocean Mission includes the development of technologies for deep-sea mining and the development of ocean climate change advisory services and technological innovations for exploration and conservation of deep-sea biodiversity.

The mission also involves the mapping of the ocean floor using a manned submersible depth rated to 6,000 meters and the development of an ocean mining system specifically engineered for the sustainable utilization of deep-sea bio resources.

The budget has also increased allocation for (O-SMART) technology, which seeks to strengthen ocean observation networks for the acquisition of time series data from seas around the country.
