PM Gati Shakti’s National Master Plan aims at facilitating the development of multi-model connectivity infrastructure to various economic zones including ports and shipping centres

By PIB Delhi

PM Gati Shakti’s National Master Plan (NMP) is a transformative approach for integrated and holistic planning across concerned Ministries/Departments to improve multimodal connectivity, and logistics efficiency and to address critical infrastructure gaps for the seamless movement of people and goods, with a focus on minimizing disruptions and ensuring timely completion of projects.

The NMP aims at facilitating the development of multi-modal connectivity infrastructure to various economic zones, including the Ports and shipping sector. 101 projects in respect of Ports and Shipping have so far been identified under the PM Gati Shakti initiative worth Rs. 60,872 Crores for implementation. Out of these, 13 projects worth Rs. 4,423 Crore have been completed. The state-wise list of projects for the Ports and shipping sector is annexed.

For enhanced capital expenditure by States for infrastructure development, the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure through part II (for PM-Gati Shakti related expenditure) of the “Scheme for Special Assistance to States for Capital Investment for 2022-23” has made an additional provision of Rs. 5000 crores for disbursement among the States as long-term loans at a zero interest rate.

The Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways has undertaken various initiatives for ease of doing business. Incentives such as Model Concession Agreement, flexibility to concessioners, New tariff guidelines, etc have been issued, which allow improvement in port performance at Major Ports. However, Under PM Gati Shakti there is no envisaged structure related to additional incentives for any high-performing port.
