A Bill seeking to provide greater autonomy in decision-making to 12 major ports in the country and profession­alise their governance by setting up a Board for each one of them, was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Friday. The Major Port Authoritie­s Bill, 2016, which seeks to repeal the Major Port Trusts Act of 1963, was introduced by Minister of State for Road Transport and Shipping P Radhakrish­nan. The new legislatio­n, which would replace the Act, aims to provide greater autonomy and flexibilit­y to the major ports and profession­alise their governance. It proposes to set up Board of Port Authority for each major port.
