  • The port sector in India is passing through interesting times. The sector has witnessed a surge in activity in the past couple of years in terms of policies and regulations, incentives and schemes, and project uptake.
  • A major boost to the sector came in January 2018, when the central government approved the long-awaited demand for amendments to the model concession agreement (MCA) for PPP projects at major ports. A bail-out plan for stressed PPP projects at the major ports, amendments to the Major Port Authorities Bill, 2016 and extension of the Coastal Berth Scheme for three years were the other major policies announced by the government.
  • Traffic at Indian ports also witnessed a much higher year-on-year growth of 6.7 per cent in 2017-18, compared to 5.7 per cent in the previous fiscal. Paradip Port became the second major port to achieve the milestone of handling 100 mt of cargo during 2017-18. Overall, the growth was led by non-major ports at 9.2 per cent compared to 4.8 per cent at major ports. In terms of capacity addition, major ports added a capacity of 385.36 mt in 2017-18.
  • Further, the launch of the Sagarmala programme generated the much-needed optimism in the sector. About 432 projects involving an investment of about Rs 4.14 trillion are at various stages of implementation and development. Moreover, 27 greenfield ports – six major and 21 non-majors – are being developed under the programme.
  • Promoting ease-of-doing business has become a key focus area for the government. Under this, a number of activities such as the elimination of manual forms, initiation of direct port delivery and the installation of container scanners and RFID-based automation systems are being undertaken.
  • Areas such as shipbuilding, cruise shipping, ro-ro ferry services and port connectivity have also witnessed increased interest in the past one year. Port connectivity through road and rail is being undertaken on a fast-track basis. Mumbai and Chennai ports are setting up new international cruise facilities. Meanwhile, shipbuilding companies have come out with IPOs to fund their expansion plans.
  • Having said that, for effective and timely execution of projects, the process for obtaining clearances, land acquisition, etc. needs to be fast-tracked. The creation of adequate infrastructure (connectivity, draught, etc.) as well as access to finance will be a key enabler for projects and for investments. First- and last-mile connectivity through rail and road, and supportive integrated facilities such as FTWZs, CFSs/ICDs and logistics parks also need to be planned and developed in advance.
  • The mission of this conference is to analyse the key trends and developments in the port sector, discuss the impact and progress of key government programmes, and showcase the best practices and new initiatives being taken by ports. It will also highlight new and emerging technology and equipment trends and solutions.
