DETAILS

  • The government approved the setting up of a port at Vadhavan in Maharashtra at a  cost of ₹65,544.54 crore, which is part of  the ₹100 trillion investment in  infrastructure announced by the Narendra  Modi administration

PPP MODE

  • Vadhavan will be set up as a corporate port under the Companies Act. It would be developed as a  landlord port with the port company building the  basic port infrastructure while berths, terminals  and associated facilities will be constructed by  private firms in public-private-partnership (PPP)

WHAT IS LANDLORD MODEL?

  • In the landlord port model, the publicly governed port authority acts as a regulatory body and as landlord while private companies  carry out port operations—mainly cargo-handling activities.
  • Here, the port authority maintains ownership of the port while the infrastructure is leased to private firms that provide and maintain  their own superstructure and install own equipment to handle
  • In return, the landlord port gets a share of the revenue from the private entity.
  • The role of the landlord port authority would be to carry out all public sector services and operations such as the award of bids for  cargo terminals and dredging.
