June 23, 2016

According to the JOC:

India’s port connectivity infrastructure, which is a source of regular frustration for shippers and logistics providers, should show some improvement in the coming years. The government of India last week announced that the Ministry of Shipping already awarded three port rail projects worth Rs. 38.71 (approximately $6 million) and is working to clear another 18 investment proposals under its flagship “sagar mala” infrastructure program. The finalized projects include two intermodal routes connecting the eastern Port of Visakhapatnam , involving a total cost of Rs. 26.03 crore, and a Rs. 12.68 crore project at Chennai Port . Work on all of these new facilities is due for completion early next year
