  • The traffic handled at Indian ports increased at a compound annual growth rate ofabout 3 per cent during 2016-17 to 2020-21. While the pandemic-induced disruptions led to a decline in traffic during April-October 2021-22, the major ports handled 407mt of traffic, compared to 355mt in the corresponding period of 2020-21, registering an increase of around 15 per cent.
  • Over the years, Indian ports have shown significant improvements in terms of increased draught levels, better utilisation of IT infrastructure, improvement in efficiency through enhanced mechanisation and digitalisation, and reduction in congestion and waiting period at ports.In addition, significantemphasis has been laid on the movement of containers, resulting in dwell time reduction from around 200 hours to less than 40 hours.
  • Capacity augmentation continues to be a key focus area under the Sagarmala programme. Overall, 373 projects entailing an investment of Rs 3.94 trillion are being implemented under the programme.
  • In addition, the recently launched Maritime India Vision 2030 (MIV 2030) is a 10-year blueprint for the sector. It aims to boost waterways, give a fillip to the shipbuilding industry and encourage cruise tourism in India. As part of MIV 2030, major ports need to undertake capacity addition of 423 mtpa at an investment of over Rs 334 billion. Of this capacity addition, 95 per centis planned to be executed under the PPP/captive mode by major ports, thus providing an impetus to private participation.
  • The government has also put in place plans to increase private participation in the sector. Plans are underway to develop seven port projects worth more than Rs 20 billion on a PPP basis. As part of the National Monetisation Pipeline, 31 projects have been identified for private sector participation,aimed at improving operational efficiency and capacity utilisation of the existing assets of nine major ports. The estimated capex for these projects is around Rs 144 billion.
  • The government has also been promoting the use of coastal shipping and inland waterways to reduce dependence on road and rail.
  • Meanwhile, the Major Port Authorities Act, 2021 received the President’s assent in February 2021. The Act repeals the Major Port Trusts Act, 1963. It will introduce an Adjudicatory Board, which will replace the Tariff Authority for Major Ports (TAMP). The Board would perform the functions carried out by TAMP (except tariff fixation), adjudicate disputes,review stressed PPP projects and look into complaints.
  • With increasing volumes, the sector urgently needs to focus on reducing the logistics cost, improvinglast-mile connectivity, shiftingcargo movement towardscoastal shipping and inland waterways,and enhancingdigitalisation of operations.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the emerging trends and developments in the port sector, highlight the upcoming opportunities in the sector, and discuss the issues and challenges. The conference will also showcase the best practices, and emerging technology and equipment solutions.
