Port Land May be Leased Out to Pvt Players for Projects
The government is mulling giving land parcels of state-run ports to private players “on lease” for various projects. “There are separate plans for Kolkata and Mumbai ports. We are making two smart cities at Kandla and Paradip, studies for which have begun. Private players could be part of our projects but land to them will be strictly on the basis of lease,” shipping minister Nitin Gadkari said.
