Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) has been grabbing headlines during recent times for several good reasons. Today India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The government has made its vision very clear by declaring initiatives such as port led development. To keep pace with the nation’s inspirations, Indian ports will have to play a major role.
JNPT has taken this challenge heads on. The port handles around 55% of India’s total container cargo. There have been several initiatives implemented for promoting the “ease of doing business”. Few years back the port was in news for reasons such as congestion, delays in evacuation of cargo from port, rail road connectivity difficulties faced by the trade, delays due to cumbersome documentation procedures.
We interviewed Mr. Neeraj Bansal, Dy. Chairman, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust to find out the ground realities now. In a candid conversation, he replied to all existing issues. The questions we asked during our conversation, were received from the users and stakeholders of the port. Please click on the below link to view the full interview:
