India eases up on domestic coastal shipping for foreign-flagged ships


The shipping ministry in India has relaxed cabotage restrictions for ports that transship at least half of the containers passing through.
The cabotage relaxation means foreign-flagged container shipping lines will be permitted to carry export-import laden and empty containers between Indian domestic ports, which was previously restricted to domestic lines.
The government said the move will help India create hubs within the country and reduce dependence on neighbouring hub ports in Colombo, Sri Lanka and Singapore for transhipment. By easing its cabotage regulations, India hopes to attract more container cargo, reported Delhi's Economic Times.
A container port seeking cabotage relaxation for transhipment will have to achieve transshipment volumes of 50 per cent annually or it will be disqualified for up to three years before being allowed to reapply for the cabotage relaxation.
