by Dikhyaa Mohanty

The Finance Minister’s four-year monetisation plan includes four projects of Paradip Port in Odisha and the government is looking to monetise 31 projects in nine major ports, which is expected to bring in an investment of Rs. 12,828 crore.

According to the reports, the National Monetisation Pipeline document states that the assets considered for monetisation from FY 2022 to 2025 are spread across 9 of the 12 major ports. Towards this, 31 projects have been identified for private sector participation for improved operational efficiency and capacity utilisation of existing port assets. Of 31 projects, 13 projects with an expected CAPEX of Rs. 6,924 crore are envisaged to be tendered out in FY 2022. A total of 18 projects adding up to Rs 7,168 crore are expected to be awarded between 2023 and 2025.

Two projects of Paradip Port will be tendered out in 2022 with an expected capex of Rs 3000 crore as approved by the Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs in 2020. The mechanisation of two berths (CQ1 & CQ2) is likely to be tendered for Rs 1103 crore in 2024 and another for Rs 75 crore in 2025.
