INTRODUCTION

With the handling over the Port of Karachi to Pakistan, North-West India lost an outlet to the sea. On January 20, 1952, the then Prime Minister, Late Shri Jawaharlal Nehru laid the foundation stone for the new Port. Ever since Kandla has looked forward towards progress and was declared Major Port in 1995. Consistent, enlightened policies have ensured that the port stood up to the challenge of the surging flood of trade created by a hinterland that covers over a million sq. km. from the north and North-West of India. Kandla today has become the hub of India's foodgrains and oil imports.

Kandla is a self sufficient, self enhancing Port. It is also among the highest revenue earning Port of India. The Port is the nearest, most economical and most convenient for handling imports and exports of the highly productive granary and industrial belt stretching across Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pardesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat.

Kandla Port is the most economical major port in terms of tariff and operational expenditure. The efficiency and all rrequisite user facilities neverthkless confirm to international standards. The Port emphasis on being up to date with the latest technological innovations.

Happy labour-management relations and economical handling of heterogeneous cargo is considered the key element to the sucess of the Port of Kandla.
