It is hoped that this privatisation will enable the ports to compete more effectively with the raft of new ports that have been developed by private operators in recent years, and which have grown at a faster rate than the state-run facilities. Pipavav is a case in point.

However, the plan is coming up against stiff opposition from the unions, which fear that moving from a trustee model will result in a loss of jobs, and harm pension interests. The unions argue that more flexibility can be introduced to the ports' operations through amending the Major Ports...
