Myanmar/Malaysia-India-Singapore Transit (MIST) Submarine Cable System

Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, has suggested that the government create an appropriate corridor for laying submarine cable systems in the coastal area for better management and to avoid conflict with various stakeholders considering the increasing number of international cable landing on the Chennai coast.

The EAC discussed the proposal for laying a submarine cable system spanning 8,100 km for Myanmar/Malaysia-India-Singapore Transit (MIST) landings near MRC Nagar in Chennai and Versova in Mumbai.

The committee recommended the project for CRZ clearance with certain conditions. This will be the 17th such optical fiber cable system to land in Mumbai and is expected to be ready for service in 2023.

Submarine Communication Cable

  • It is a cable laid on the sea floor between land-based stations for transmitting telecommunication signals across the ocean and parts of the ocean.
  • Modern submarine cables use fiber-optic technology.
  • Optical fiber elements are typically coated with layers of plastic and contained in a protective tube suitable for the environment where the cable will be deployed.
  • Compared to satellites, using an internet connection via submarine cables is more reliable, cost-effective, and has a larger capacity.
