Another achievement of IWAI: PM to inaugurate second MMT on Ganga

PM Modi will dedicate to the nation India’s second riverine Multi Modal terminal built under Jal Marg Vikas Project at Sahibganj in Jharkhand on 12 September, 2019. The PM will also inaugurate state-of-the-art terminal through a two-way digital communication system in Ranchi. Built at a cost of Rs 290 crore in about two years the project was implemented by Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI). it will open up industries of Jharkhand and Bihar to the global market and provide Indo-Nepal cargo connectivity through waterways route.

 

PM himself had laid the foundation stone of Sahibganj MMT in April, 2017. This is the second of the three MMT being constructed on river Ganga under Jal Marg Vikas Project (JMVP).  Earlier, in November, 2018 the Prime Minister had inaugurated the MMT at Varanasi.

 

This will open up industries of Jharkhand and Bihar to the global market and provide Indo-Nepal cargo connectivity through waterways. It will play an important role in transportation of domestic coal from the local mines in Rajmahal area to various thermal power plants located along NW-1. Other than coal, stone chips, fertilisers, cement and sugar are other commodities expected to be transported through the terminal.  This will help creating direct employment of about 600 people and indirect employment of about 3000 people in the region.
