The Ministry of Shipping Announces New Tariff Guidelines

Mr. Milind Deora, Minister of State for Shipping, announced new guidelines for the determination of tariff for major port projects in the country on 31st July 2013. The new simplified guidelines are expected to pave the way for increased investment flows into the port sector. Mr. Deora has expressed his hope that these guidelines will not only improve port capacity but also port efficiency.

The Ministry of Shipping, along with stakeholders, felt that the existing Tariff Authority for Major Ports’ regulations were detrimental to the growth of the sector. Besides providing for tariffs to be indexed to inflation, the guidelines also set out performance standards to ensure improved quality of service.
