Owing to lacklustre volume growth in most of the commodities, major ports
could manage to log meagre growth of 1.14 per cent in overall cargo throughput. The ports at Kamarajar (-7.31 per cent), Chennai (-10.42 per cent), New Mangalore (-12.96 per cent), Mormugao (-11.85 per cent) and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust- JNPT (-3.35 per cent) recorded negative year-on-year growth in the period under review.
Vishakapatnam port aced other ports in cargo volumes with 10.98 per cent growth. None of the other major ports could register double-digit growth.
