There is stress on developing other infrastructure including the human capital. The area of concern is the speed of processing and multiplicity of processes. A solution which compels the promoter of the main infrastructure to invest seems an easier option. According to the NPP, the greenfield ports are likely to come up at Sagar in West Bengal, Paradip outer harbour in Odisha, Enayam in Tamil Nadu and Vadhavan in Maharashtra. The new government is taking initiatives for betterment of roads near to the ports but by the time the planning and execution will be done, the increasing volume leads to congestion at the ports. The government must not develop any new port until unless the present ports are not fully developed and exhaustive. With a view to consolidating the efficiencies of the country’s port assets and building a sustainable port-led development model, India needs to augment investments towards developing a transnational multi-modal connectivity model. Stakeholders across the supply chain need to place onus on rolling out an efficient intermodal freight transport system which will ensure reduced dwell-time at ports and improve last-mile connectivity with speedier movement of cargoes.
