IPRCL launches Rs. 4,300-cr project

    Indian Port Rail Corporation
    The newly launched Indian Port Rail Corporation (IPRCL), which focuses on aligning rail with ports for smoother, cleaner, and cheaper connectivity, is all set to start work on the Rs. 4,300-cr project connecting Odisha's Paradip and Dhamra ports to coalfields at Talcher in the state. It would give a big push to coastal shipping under the government's ambitious Sagarmala program to enhance port connectivity and encourage coastal shipping of commodities to reduce overall logistic costs. Paradip is the second largest major port of India and plans to double its current cargo handling capacity of 118 million tons per annum (mtpa) to 300 mtpa. The commodity-wise cargo handled include iron ore, thermal coal, coking coal, manganese ore, finished steel, fertilizer, project cargo, and containers. The Dhamra port in Odisha, a deep draft sea port, plans to enhance capacity to 142 mtpa over the next 10 years from 25 mtpa now. The ministry is keen to exploit the enormous growth potential given the vast hinterlands in Odisha, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, and the north-eastern states. IPRCL has 25 projects in its kitty and has already commenced work on eight of them, said sources.
