In January 2024, the Lakshadweep Islands witnessed significant developments led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, focusing on overall development and boosting tourism. Key initiatives included inaugurating projects worth Rs 1,150 crore in Kavaratti and establishing the Kochi-Lakshadweep Islands Submarine Optical Fiber Connection for high-speed internet. The project aims to connect 11 Lakshadweep Islands, improving internet speed and enhancing public services like healthcare, education, and digital banking. Additionally, infrastructural developments such as a desalination plant, tap connections, a solar power plant, and healthcare facilities were initiated. The focus remains on balancing ecological sustainability with economic growth in this fragile archipelago.
