Their underwater conference assumes much significance in the wake of a recent global report that termed seas near Mumbai, Kerala and Andaman and Nicobar Islands as the most polluted in the world. The report also said most of the plastic and other debris in the sea originate from inland.

The participants included Hema Menon, the Centre Head of UST Global, Dinesh P. Thambi, Vice President and Delivery Centre Head, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Rony Thomas Zacaria, CEO of Avon Mobility Solution Pvt Ltd, Chennai.
