THE DEENDAYAL Port Belief (DPT), which manages Kandla port in Kutch district, has objected to Gujarat authorities granting permission to a personal group to revive what the latter claims to be an outdated jetty in Mithi Rohar village close to the general public port, citing that the proposed venture is simply too near Kandla.
In response, the Gujarat authorities has put the venture on back-burner, pending disposal of objections raised by the DPT.
Ahir Salt and Allied Merchandise Non-public Restricted (ASAPPL), a gaggle firm of Neelkanth Group of Gandhidham which is into the enterprise of salt manufacturing, transport providers, cargo dealing with and storage, has sought approvals from Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB) to revive what it claims to be a jetty in Mithi Rohar village in Kandla creek which was operational until 1976. The corporate has proposed to develop a jetty there and allied infrastructure like highway, railroad and a tank farm with an purpose to diversify its enterprise in port operations. The Group had signed a memorandum of understanding with Gujarat authorities at Vibrant Gujarat Summit in 2011 to revive the jetty.
The corporate proposes to take a position Rs 180 crore within the venture and has acquired environmental clearance and different approvals like development permission from the state authorities.
In September final 12 months, the DPT objected to the venture saying it was too near Kandla port and that the non-public agency was searching for harmless passage by means of the Kandla port. Following this objection, the GMB has put the venture on maintain. “Now we have withheld remaining clearances to the jetty venture pending decision of objections raised by the DPT,” a high Gujarat authorities officer informed on Thursday on the situation of anonymity.
Arjan Ahir, one of many administrators within the ASAPPL, alleged the objections by the DPT have been motivated. “We first approached the DTP searching for clearances to revive the jetty however it informed us that the land belongs to the Gujarat authorities. In the meantime, the DPT revealed its land-use vision-2020 doc in 12 months 2012, exhibiting our lease land within the proposed map of improvement. We objected the Mithi Rohar land being included in it. The DPT accepted our objections and revised the draft which excluded the Mithi Rohar land. Now, that DPT has accepted that the stated land belongs to the Gujarat authorities, the GMB is free to develop it. These objections now by the DPT are motivated by vested pursuits,” stated Ahir.
Whereas the GMB has determined to go sluggish on the venture, DPT stated it had no formal intimation of any such determination. “Now we have not acquired any formal communication from the Gujarat authorities on this regard thus far,” stated DPT chairman SK Mehta.
