Our Bureau

Mangalore , Dec. 27

THE New Mangalore Port (NMP) has not been affected by Sunday evening's high tidal waves in the region.

The Chairman of New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT), Mr P.T. Vanan, told Business Line on Monday, "There is nothing alarming at New Mangalore Port."

The Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner, Mr Aravind Srivastav, told reporters here on Monday that the operations were stopped at the NMP for three hours on Sunday night as the water neared the deck at the port.

NMPT officials said though there was an increase in the level of the tides, it did not pose any problem to the port.

Loading and unloading of the cargo is taking place in the port as usual, and there is no need to worry, they said.

However, officials are continuously monitoring the condition at the sea.
