Indian ports are set to double profit this year: Gadkari




Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari has said that Indian ports are set to double their profit this year. Addressing delegates at the Asean-India Pravasi Bhartiya Divas in Singapore today, the minister said that for this year, it is expected to generate a profit of 7000 crore rupees from port operations which would be more than double as compared to previous three years which stood at 3,000 crore rupees.

The Minister said, six new port projects are being planned and invited Asean investors to participate in Indian infrastructure projects, as the pace of development is accelerated in the country. Mr Gadkari has also appealed to the Indian diaspora community to donate as well as participate in the Clean Ganga Project. He shared with delegates the strong support received from London-based diaspora, who have pledged 3,000 crore for 155 Ganga projects.
