Major ports to get new tariff structure soon

Aimed at making the major ports competitive, the Shipping Ministry has proposed for freedom to fix tariff in tune with market forces. Seeking comments from stakeholders on ´Revised Guidelines for Determination of Tariff for Major Ports, 2014´, the Ministry has said the reference scale of rates (RSOR) for commodity/containers, vessel-related services and various miscellaneous services or combination of services as the case may be, shall be notified by Tariff Authority for Major Ports (TAMP ) for each major port trust.´ It said for the purpose of proposing reference scale of rates, the major port trusts will first draw base scale of rates covering tariff for all cargo/commodity/container handling services, vessel-related services and miscellaneous services other than estate-related charges.

Shipping Minister GK Vasan had earlier said that the Ministry is finalising new guidelines which will provide a level-playing field across the port sector by allowing the terminals to fix market-linked tariffs.
