Oct 12, 2017
Seven major ports of the country, including Paradip, Chennai, Cochin and New Mangalore, recorded a growth rate of 3.24 percent during April-September 2017, an official statement said on Wednesday.
The ports recording a growth of 3.24 percent together handled 326.4 MT cargo during the April-September 2017 period as against 316.1 MT handled during the corresponding period last year.

The highest growth was registered by Cochin Port (19.62 percent) as compared to the corresponding period previous year, followed by Kolkata (including Haldia), New Mangalore and Paradip.
Cochin Port's growth was mainly due to increase in traffic of port of lading (POL) by around 28 percent and Containers by over 10 percent.
In Kolkata Port, overall growth (over the same period year before) was positive -- 11.95 percent. Kolkata Dock System (KDS) registered traffic growth of 0.72 percent. Haldia Dock Complex (HDC) registered positive growth of 17.74 percent, the statement said.
