Minister of State for Defence Subhash Ramrao Bhamre has said that no progress has been made in locating the AN-32 aircraft that went missing in July, but the search operations will continue.

The Indian Air Force plane AN-32 carrying 29 people, including 21 military personnel, six crew members and two civilians, was on its way to Port Blair from Chennai when it disappeared from radar on July 22.
India deployed ships, planes and a submarine to trace the missing aircraft but the aircraft could not be located.
It was confirmed that the aircraft had no underwater locator beacon (ULB) and it did have two Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs).
â€œWhatever we have Indian air force, navy, coastal guard- all the resources are have been used. Surface search is going on, underwater search is going on, but we didnâ€™t get any clue so far. But search will go on. The relatives are daily given the information on the basis of whatever we have. Inquiry is been ordered and the inquiry is going on. The moment we get a report, we get details. So far we have not got anything,â€ the minister said.
He also added that survival of the people on board is unlikely.
