Major ports in India get tariff regulator

01 Sep 2021

The Tariff Authority for Major Ports (TAMP) will no longer be in charge of setting tariffs at the 12 major ports under Central Government control after 
24 years. The Major Ports Authority Bill 2020 established the Board of Port Authority, which will now set tariffs that will be used as a guide during the bidding process for public-private-partnership (PPP) projects. According to the Ministry of Shipping's annual report for 2020-21, PPP operators are free to set tariffs based on market conditions. TAMP's Reference Tariff Guidelines were extended until March 8, 2021, or until further orders, whichever comes first.
