There have been several positive developments In the past year. New guidelines for granting security clearance to bidders have been released. New types of contracts and funding sources are being explored. The industry profile has changed with a number of foreign players entering the sector. Also, public-private partnerships for dredging projects are being planned.

However, the actual achievement in dredging has not kept pace with demand growth. In the Eleventh Plan, only 50 per cent of the dredging target was met and draught levels continue to be low.
