INTRODUCTION

In 1690 the British anchored for the first time in the reach of the Hoogly River near the present day Calcutta. The city subsequently went on to become the premier port in British India.

The port was commissioned on 17 October 1870 under the Calcutta Port Act. By then the Calcutta jetties were fully operational. In 1886 a separate oil wharf was setup at Baj Baj. The impound dock at Kidderpore (KPD) became operational in 1893. In 1925 four riverside jetties and a coaling jetty were constructed at Garden reach. In 1928 the second dock system, King George's Dock now known as Netaji Subhash Dock (KPD) came up in the same area.

The Haldia Docking Complex (HDC), deep water third dock system was commissioned, 104 km downstream of Calcutta. It was the first comprehensive port project in India, providing composite cargo handling facilities and lending support to the growth of port oriented industry.

The Calcutta dock system comprises KPD, NSD and Baj Baj. There are 18 & 9 operational berths at KPD & NSD respectively. Baj Baj has 6 wharves for liquid bulk. There are 10 berths and 2 oil jetties at HDC. Haldia (HDC) Sagar (SAC) and Diamond Heart provide excellent loading/unloading facilities. These facilities have been developed on a stretch of over 150 Km. Of the river
