False Equivalencies posted[edit]

For some reason, some person has decided to post equivalent Naval ranks in the article, even though the Coast Guard pay grade link cited by them does not mention any such equivalency at all, and they seem to have made up the equivalencies according to their own preferences and convenience. I have corrected the ranks, and added the actual equivalency by government pay grade, but I would suggest that the section be locked from editing, to prevent vandalism, and false and misleading information being given out. It was suggested that the entry level position of Assistant Commandant is equivalent to a Naval Lieutenant, when it is actually in the same pay grade as a Sub Lieutenant, the entry level naval officers post. Again, Commandant JG's are in a lower scale of pay than commanders, but were sought to (wrongly be equated). I have corrected this, and added a link to the Naval pay scales. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aspuar (talkcontribs) 16:59, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Law enforcement agency or military unit?[edit]

From the content of the article it seems that the Indian Coast Guard is in actuality a law enforcement agency and not a military unit. What is the relevance of {{Military of India}} to the arcticle? Peet Ern (talk) 04:19, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

It is military. It is a part of the Indian armed foerces. It only has law enforcment type misisons —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.244.141.229 (talk) 01:12, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
