The Central Industrial Security Force, which got a nod from the Shipping Ministry for deployment on merchant vessels on piracy prone sea routes, will be trained with the Marine Commandos (MARCOS) of the Navy, officials said.
Initially, the state-owned merchant vessels will be given a preference in the deployment process. The CISF is preparing a batch of 150-200 personnel to be deployed on merchant vessels. These personnel will be also trained to cope with 'sea-sickness' and taught international laws and marine science. Before they undergo training, they will face an interview that will determine their mental strength.
