Work on Mormugoa Port Draft Expansion Stalled


Tuesday / March 28, 2017

Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari has alleged a stop-work order from the National Green Tribunal last year on a dredging project at the Mormugoa Port in Goa has resulted in a loss of Rs 250 Crore to the exchequer.

Speaking at a function in Jaigarh, Maharashtra, the Union Minister said that the centre wants to make the Mormugoa Port as the first facility with an 18 metre draft in the country however due to judicial intervention it has not happened so far.

Talking about the Sagarmala Project, Gadkari said that 15 lakh crore rupees will be invested in the ambitious project out of which 4 lakh crore will be used for Rail, Road and Port Connectivity.
