Mumbai Port will be floating a global tender to appoint a project management and implementation consultant for preparing a master plan for developing its land. It is the countryÂ´s largest port. Â´Till now, the plans that have been made are general. We do not have a detailed master plan enlisting where to build a road, a marina or a restaurant. I need to appoint a consultant for that,Â´ recently appointed chairman Sanjay Bhatia of the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) told reporters. Bhatia said there were a slew of challenges for implementation, with coordination among various authorities the biggest. Â´About 1,000 acres of the overall 1,800 acres of the MPT is available for development but this is not contiguous. There are various agencies at both the Central and the state levels which deal with various facets, making coordination a key challenge,Â´ he said.
