Detail of Post :
Context “Sagarmala” is an initiative which was announced by the then Prime Minister of India on 15th August ,2003 with the objective of achieving rapid capacity expansion, modernization of seaports along India’s coastline, development of inland and coastal navigation with the aim of promoting “ port-led development.” Recognizing the importance of the maritime sector in the economic growth, the Hon’ble President of India, in his address to the Parliament on 9th June, 2014, had stated that “The Government would evolve a model of port-led development.” It has, thereafter, been decided that the Ministry of Shipping shall be the nodal Ministry for Sagarmala initiative. Presently, the growth of India’s maritime sector is constrained due to many developmental, procedural and policy related challenges viz. involvement of multiple agencies in development of infrastructure to promote industrialization, trade, tourism and transportation; presence of a dual instructional structure that has led to development of major and non-major ports as separate, unconnected entities; lack of requisite infrastructure for evacuation from major and nonmajor ports leading to sub-optimal transport modal mix; limited hinterland linkages that increases the cost of transportation and cargo movement; limited development of centres for manufacturing and urban and economic activities in the hinterland; low penetration of coastal and inland shipping in India; limited mechanization and procedural bottlenecks and lack of scale, deep draft and other facilities at various ports in India. The Union Cabinet has given in principle approval for the concept and institutional framework of Sagarmala project.
Objectives Ministry of Shipping recognizes the need for actively engaging and involving state governments and relevant planning agencies at the state level into Sagarmala from the initial stages. The institutional framework of Sagarmala envisages the set up of State Sagarmala Committees (SSCs) at individual state level. In addition a Task Force is being set up for working with State Governments and for dissemination of knowledge and information regarding Sagarmala and for providing recommendations for development of maritime activities in States. A Community Development Fund is also envisaged for undertaking local interventions for strengthening economic development (skills, employment generation) of coastal communities, which would be undertaken mainly through state governments. While the Sagarmala initiative is being driven by the Ministry of Shipping, a large number of the individual initiatives would be implemented through individual state governments. Some examples of such initiatives would include road connectivity to/from ports, marine tourism development, development of Coastal Economic Regions (CERs), skills development and promotion of agriculture and MSME in coastal districts. 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 being instituted within the Ministry for effective planning and coordination of initiatives under Sagarmala. The roe of a State Coordination Advisor is envisaged as part of the Sagarmala Cell, with the intention of ensuring that Sagarmala appropriately engages state governments at each stage of the programme. The State Coordination Advisor will report to Joint Secretary, Sagarmala.

To Assist the Ministry of Shipping in interacting with maritime States/Union Territories Governments regarding Sagarmala planning, project identification and follow up action.
