India: Government Takes Steps to Develop Inland Waterways

The Government is taking steps to develop inland water transport (IWT) mode by declaring potential waterways as National Waterways (NWs) and developing IWT infrastructure thereon.

In this process five waterways totaling about 4382 km. have been declared as NWs.

Commercially viable stretches such as Kakinada-Puducherry canals, Bhadrachalam-Rajahmundry, Rajahmundry-Eluru on National Waterway 4 have been considered for development under PPP mode in Phase-I.

Development of remaining stretches including North-Buckingham canal (between Pedaganjam and Chennai) and South Buckingham canal (between Chennai and Markanam) are to be taken up in Phase-II.
