While the major focus would be on the maritime states and UTs ( Andhra Pradesh, Andaman &Nicobar, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Maharashtra, Odisha, Puduchery, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal), some non coastal states would also be participating in specific Sagarmala Projects ( e.g hinterland connectivity, dry ports, multi modal logistics parks etc). A Sagarmala Cell is set up in the Ministry for effective planning and coordination of initiatives under Sagarmala.
