Captain of ports seeks 100% hike in port charges and fees

PANAJI: The captain of ports (CoP) hopes to see a jump in its revenue collection after its recommendation seeking 100 % increase in port charges and fees is accepted by the government. The CoP's revenue collection nosedived from 40 crore in 2011-12 (before mining came to a halt in September 2012), to 4.4 crore in 2013-14. The CoP doesn't see its revenue going up significantly, as and when mining re-starts in future due to 20-million ton cap imposed by the Supreme Court. "Even if mining restarts it's no solace to us. We will get a pittance due to restricted mining activities," said a CoP official. In the recent years the CoP has not hiked port charges and fees. "We had raised port charges 12 years ago," said a CoP official. The CoP expects to have new rates made applicable a month later, after government approves its proposal which has been placed before the government. The CoP earned Rs 12 crore in 2012-13 whereas in 2013-14 it's collection dropped significantly. It could earn only Rs 4.4 crore by way of fees and port charges. With its revenue sinking significantly after the ban on mining, the CoP sees the proposed hike in port charges as the only way to enhance its income. As source of earning from barges and mining vessels using Panaji port jurisdiction has stopped, its collection is limited to cruises, fishing vessels, water sports boats and cargo carriers. On an average, 75-80 vessels travel in the jurisdiction of Panaji port which is extended upto 10 nautical miles. Source : Time of India
