Indian ports upgrade revealed

New Delhi: The Indian government is finally getting around to upgrading its smaller ports with more than 100 slated for a big infrastructure upheaval as part of a plan to raise the nation's port capacity from 600m tonnes to 2bn tonnes by 2016. "Given that the growth rate of cargo has been more than 10% in the last two years and trade volume is expected to grow by over 25%, India must target a total port capacity of 1,500 m tonnes by the end of '12 and 2000 m tonnes by '16," shipping secretary AK Mohapatra said.  [10/07/06]
