MUMBAI: The India government, in order to effectively disseminate ocean-related advisories from the lab to the end-user, has developed 'Sagar Vani'.

The union minister for science & technology, earth sciences and environment, forest & climate change Harshvardhan has launched the 'India Quake' app and 'Sagar Vani' at the Foundation Day of Ministry of Earth Sciences in New Delhi on 27 July.

'Sagar Vani' is a software platform where various dissemination modes will be integrated on a single central server. It ’ includes multi-lingual SMS, Voice Call / Audio Advisory, Mobile Apps (User / Admin modules), Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), Email, GTS, Fax, Digital Display Boards, Radio / Television broadcast units, IVRS, Cloud Channels, etc. The system also has facility to provide access to various stakeholders so that they too will be able to further disseminate information and alerts to the user community.

‘Sagar Vani’ system compares with the most advanced countries’ services in terms of speed of delivery, omni channel capabilities and diverseness of services. With this system, the services will be disseminated in local languages using advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities. For the first time in India, Sagar Vani is also using the power of television and cable network mediums for topical and alert dissemination services.

ESSO-Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) under Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) provides ocean information services for the benefit of various user communities in India. The services are more fruitfully utilized when the advisories reaches the end user in timely manner and in user readable format. Now-a-days ICT facilities in the country are accessible to large population of the country and that plays a major role in effective dissemination of information to the end user. ESSO-INCOIS has adopted the state-of-the-art technologies and tools available in the country for the timely dissemination of Ocean Information and Advisory Services that includes Potential Fishing Zone (PFZ) advisories, Ocean State Forecast (OSF), High Wave Alerts and Tsunami early warnings.

Presently, the advisories are being disseminated to the stakeholders from different service sections and through various stakeholders and partners, which might cause delay in dissemination of the services. In order to timely disseminate the advisories, 'Sagar Vani' has been developed by ESSO-INCOIS through Gaian Solutions Pvt. Ltd.

The ‘Sagar Vani’ will now serve the coastal community, especially the fishermen community with the advisories and alerts towards their livelihood as well as their safety at Sea.
