New Delhi (ILNS): In a latest development Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the renaming and expansion of the Ministry of Shipping. The new name is the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways.

Prime Minister announced this while addressing a gathering after inaugurating a Ro-Pax ferry service between Hazira in Surat and Ghogha in Bhavnagar district of Gujarat, which will reduce the 370-km road distance between the two places to 90-km by sea route.

The Ro-Pax ferry service will cut the travel time between the two places to about four hours from 10 to 12 hours.

PM Modi said: 

“Now this ministry will be known as Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways. It is being expanded. In most of the developed economies the Shipping Ministry is also responsible for Ports and Waterways. In India, the Shipping Ministry has been doing a lot of work related to Ports and Waterways. Now with more clarity in the name, more clarity will also come in the work.”

“I believe that with all these efforts we will be able to reduce our logistics cost very much. To keep the price of logistics under control, the efforts are being made, these efforts will also give new impetus to the economy,” he added. “To reduce the cost of logistics, the country is moving ahead with a holistic and long-term view of multi-modal connectivity. The effort is to improve connectivity between road, rail, air and shipping infrastructure by removing silos between them.”
