Union minister of road transport and highways and shipping, Nitin Gadkari said the government’s commitment to develop infrastructure has bolstered the faith of investors which has resulted in 76 times oversubscription of IPO of Cochin Shipyard Ltd, a government enterprise.

The minister talked about success of the government’s economic policies, friendly approach for development, transparency and corruption free system. He said the efficiency of the government ports has increased by 2.86 percent in comparison to private ports.
Gadkari also said that in the shipping industry there is a lot of potential for ship building and ship repairs. He said, “In the next 15 days, work of 10 inland waterways will be commenced in across the country. Inland waterway is a game changer and going to reduce the logistic cost and would help industry in export promotion and creating more employment.”

He said work of 12 express highways is on and Mumbai to Vadodara Express Highway work, worth Rs 44,000 crores, will start in the next three months.
