Over the years, the maritime sector has been a key contributor to the economic growth of the nation, supporting India’s vast trade in the country and as the number one container port, which handles over half of the country’s container cargo, JNPT has played a major role in shaping India’s blue-economy. JNPT stood by its commitment to the PAPs and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) for allotment of land under the 12.5% scheme to JNPT Project Affected Persons (PAPs). On this day, I extend my gratitude and thank all our employees, trade partners, and stakeholders for their collective efforts to keep the port operational even during the ongoing pandemic.”
