According to Swarajyamag, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has given its approval to a proposal by India Ports Global (IPGL) to assume full control of the port’s operations on the Kaladan River.

Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Deendayal Port Trust (formerly Kandla Port Trust) have partnered to form India Ports Global Limited (IPGL). It was established and incorporated in January 2015 in accordance with the Companies Act of 2013 and the Ministry of Shipping’s (MoS) directives for the development of foreign ports.

IPGL has been tasked by the Ministry of Shipping with the responsibility of outfitting and managing multipurpose/container terminals at Iran’s Chabahar Port.

The Kaladan multi-modal transit system project includes the Sittwe Port. The project’s goal is to link Kolkata’s ports in eastern India.

In addition to providing a different shipping route to the northeastern regions, this link will drastically cut the price and travel time from Kolkata to Mizoram and other destinations. Additionally, it will lessen reliance on the chicken’s neck, or Siliguri Corridor, which is crammed between Bangladesh and Bhutan.

In May of last year, Sittwe Port was officially opened by Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Deputy Prime Minister Admiral Tin Aung San of Myanmar, who also greeted the first Indian cargo ship.
