Stage 2

Major Port Authorities Bill introducing transformation of port trusts and the Landlord Model

Category: Ports and Logistics

Context and Overview:

The 11 ports owned by the Indian government, and they were run as trusts following a hybrid format of the long obsolete service port model and the preferred landlord model of port management followed globally. With the passing of the new bill introducing the landlord port model, the publicly governed port authority will act as a regulatory body and as landlord while private companies carry out port operations—mainly cargo-handling activities. 

This session will discuss the effect of the new bill and add special focus to Model Concession Agreement to become more equitable and less contentious; which can further sustainable growth of the port and logistics sector and promote PPP.
