Mumbai: State-run Shipping Corp. of India Ltd has lined up a capital expenditure of more than Rs1500 crore to buy 19 vessels in 2007-08 in a bid to handle larger volumes and gain market share, a senior official said.
This expenditure is part of a $3.3-billion plan to buy 76 vessels by the end of the 11th plan. The value of the ships would be more than $840 million, director Umesh Grover said on 29 May.
