India’s Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd (APSEZ) plans to invest as much as Rs. 48,933 crore to scale up its port at Dhamra in Odisha to handle 314 million tonnes (mt) of cargo. The country’s biggest private port operator looks to make the eastern coast port as big as its flagship Mundra port in Gujarat on the western coast. Mundra Port is India’s biggest private commercial port. The expert appraisal committee (EAC) in the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change has recommended environmental and coastal regulation zone (CRZ) clearances for the expansion of Dhamra on a revised master plan filed by APSEZ.
