The west coast of the country is bordered by the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala.

Besides these, we have sovereign rights over the waters around the Lakshadweep group of islands situated in the Arabian sea and Andaman & Nicobar group of islands situated in the Bay of Bengal. As per the laws of the seas convention, every country has sovereign rights over the waters lying within 200 nautical miles perpendicular to its respective coast line.
