Objectives of Gahra Samudra Abhiyaan 

The objectives of this campaign are given below:

  • The main motto of this campaign is to find potential resources on the deep ocean floor. Like petroleum, gas reserves, and many more useful minerals, etc. 
  • Finding these things in such a harsh environment is not child’s play. That’s why this campaign is going to be responsible for the development of our ocean exploring technologies like submarines. 
  • Another priority of the deep sea campaign is to find the biodiversity of the deep seafloor. 
  • Finding is not just the only task of this campaign. Technological innovation for reserving oceanic biodiversity is included in its to-do list too. 
  • Marking those places which are the potential place of finding resources. 

Benefits of Deep-sea Campaign 

  • First of all, our country will find some more new resources for biological energy.
  • Because of this campaign, we will develop a technology to make a submarine for exploring the ocean into 6km deep. Only a few countries are able to do so.
  • We may find some new species and develop a better understanding of oceanic biodiversity and maybe we can use it to protect them. 
  • Because of this deep-sea campaign, many industrial sectors will provide job opportunities to the unemployed in many sectors. Like building ships and submarines and other many more things related to them.
