India has never seen such an oil spill: Jairam Ramesh
Mumbai:  It's been a week now since two merchant ships collided just five miles off the coast of Mumbai. The unprecedented mid-sea disaster blocked India's busiest trade route causing huge losses to the ports and exporters.

The oil spill soaked up along the coastline in Mumbai and beyond. Economically, environmentally and logistically it is a big calamity.

After inspecting the oil spill today, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said that this is the biggest oil spill India has ever seen and it has had a substantial impact on the coastline.

The Environment Minister also said that he held a review meeting on the spill and a detailed assessment will be out in the next two-three days.
