Govt’s new policy for developing dry ports 


In the revised policy for developing dry ports,   the government will discourage setting up of new inland container depots (ICDs) within 200 km of a connecting or the nearest serving sea port and has decided against permitting new ICDs to be built within 100 km of an existing facility, it is learnt. The new rule for setting up ICDs is expected to boost direct port delivery (DPD) and direct port entry (DPE) between the hinterland and ports, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) said, as per a report. 


India will be grouped into three areas – green, blue and red zones – for the purpose of opening new ICDs, container freight stations (CFS) and air freight stations. States low on ICD/CFS infrastructure will be listed under the green zone and will be open for setting up new dry ports. States where proposals can be accepted only for specific trade generating locations, with no existing facilities or with over-utilised facilities, will be grouped under the blue zone. States identified under the red zone, having adequate ICD/CFS infrastructure, may be closed indefinitely for new development, the report added.
