Port Policy


The following objectives are identified for the new port policy

  • To increase Orissa's share in the export and import sector, in national and international trade and commerce, by taking advantage of the liberalisation and globalisation process.
  • To decongest the existing major ports, by developing minor ports, on the Eastern coastal region, so as to cater to the needs of increasing volumes of international and domestic traffic.
  • To handle 70-80 MT of Cargo by 2006 in the port sector, in Orissa, as envisaged by the Government of India, Ministry of Shipping.
  • To provide port facilities to promote export-oriented and port-based industries, which constitute the major chunk of industrial investment.
  • To encourage shipbuilding, ship repairing, and ship breaking and to establish manufacturing facilities for heavy industries, in and around ports.
  • To provide facilities for coastal shipping of passengers and inter-State cargo traffic and further extension of these services to West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu etc.
  • To take up suitable facilitating measures as well as policy initiatives for attracting private sector investments in the development and operation of existing and new minor ports.
  • To establish connectivity of the ports with the riverine systems so as to increase the transportation of cargo through inland waterways.


All this envisages an integrated port development strategy, consisting of creation of port facilities and development of infrastructure facilities, like roads, railways and inland waterways, in the hinterland. Large-scale financial outlays would be required to create these new facilities, along with matching infrastructure. In view of the fact that cape size ships are used in the transportation, to capture the economies of scale, ports would be developed, with direct berthing and speedy mechanical handling facilities, so as to improve turn around of ships.
