Rewas Port yet to get channel access rights from Mumbai Port

Reliance Group promoted Rewas Aware Port has not been able to get channel access from the Mumbai Port yet. This is because Rewas Port has not yet agreed to terms offered by the Mumbai Port for the right of way (RoW).

 

Mumbai Port is under the aegis of the Central Government. Rewas is a potential competitor of Mumbai Port.

 

“In spite of several rounds of discussion with Mumbai Port Trust, Rewas Port Ltd has not yet mutually agreed to the Terms and Conditions for RoW,” Union Minister of Shipping Mr G.K. Vasan stated in a reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on Thursday.

The Government of Maharashtra through Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB) had requested Mumbai Port for grant of RoW to Rewas Port for developing an approach channel through Mumbai Port’s waters for around 17 km.

Mumbai Port has, in principle, agreed to consider the RoW to Rewas Port for development of an approach channel provided that the terms and conditions for right of way are mutually agreed to by Mumbai Port and Rewas Port, the Minister stated.
