India: KoPT Seeks 450 Acres from West Bengal Government for Silt Dumping

According to The Hindu Business Line, the Kolkata Port Trust has sought 450 acres from the West Bengal government to facilitate dredging at Jellingham Bar.

The land will be used for dumping the silt to be dredged from the river.

Jellingham is a natural sand bar or obstruction on the river channel, impacting the navigability to Haldia dock complex.

Dredging operations are set to begin soon to improve the available draught to the port.

“We are in discussions with the State Government for permissible possession of the land. We are also in touch with the local people’s representative and the district authorities,Mr Manish Jain, Chairman, Kolkata Port Trust, said.

Currently, the port authorities are carrying out offshore dumping.
