Presently, 12 major ports (six on Western and six on Eastern Coasts) are already connected with Indian Railway network. Capacity augmentation of the lines linking the ports to hinterland is taken up on a need-based manner.
Rail connectivity to some of non-major ports namely Mundra, Dahej, Pipavav, Dhamra and Krishnapatnam etc have been provided under Public Private Partnership. A participative policy for rail connectivity has been issued in December, 2012 to facilitate rail connectivity to upcoming ports and mines through Public Private Participation. Several ports projects which have been granted approval/in-principle approval under the participative policy for rail connectivity are Jaigarh, Dighi, Riwas, Astaranga, Chhara, Nargol and Hazira.
Press Release is based on the information given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 2 December 2016 (Friday).
