Feb 13, 2018

Major ports JNPT, Kamarajar and Visakhapatnam have received ‘Good’ score in a new ‘Port Performance Index’ that bench-marked performance of 13 ports which handle around 67% of India’s maritime trade.
The index was introduced by a study conducted by Dun & Bradstreet that was handed over to Commerce and Industry minister Suresh Prabhu on Monday. It looked into the issues and challenges pertaining to the ports sector and proposed policy measures to strengthen it.
In the study, seven ports (Cochin, Kandla, Paradip, Chennai, Mormugao, New Mangalore and VOC) have received ‘Average’ score, while three ports (Haldia, Kolkata and MbPT) have received ‘Poor’ score, according to a commerce ministry statement. The ‘Port Performance Index’ benchmarks the performance of various ports by combining qualitative perception of stakeholders with quantitative outcome based data, it added.
