JNPT launches Rs.1,117-cr. projects

    Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust
    In order to boost port infrastructure at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari recently laid foundation stone of eight connectivity projects with investment of Rs.1,117.03 crore. The projects include integrated common rail yard facility at JNPT, construction of coastal berth, and restructuring of yard behind swallow water berth, said official sources, adding that these projects will enhance connectivity of the hinterland to the port. Port connectivity is among the four pillars of the Ministry of Shipping's flagship Sagarmala program and huge investments are expected under the program, which will lead to better infrastructure and creation of new jobs besides giving a big push to Indian exports. They further mentioned that a lot of companies have shown interest in acquiring land for setting up factories in the JNPT SEZ zone, and this in turn will create a demand for skilled manpower. The Transport ministry informed that a coordinator will be appointed to look into the requirements of these new companies and help train the local youth from Raigad and Konkan areas to meet their specific needs.
