Government of India in its recent initiative to upgrade its sea ports in-terms of cargo handling capacity has initiated measures to build two new ports. The first one will be in Andhra Pradesh and the second one will be in West Bengal. For this purpose government has set up an Empowered Committee of Secretaries to do the feasibility study and ensure smooth implementation. Both the ports will be developed and operated under the Public Private Partnership model. These two proposed projects are considered as Major Ports hence they will come under the direct jurisdiction of government of India. Engineering Consultancy Company RITES has completed the feasibility report for both the proposed ports .
