Proposed market-driven pricing at India’s major ports is a chimera
In the proposed new regime, the board of a port authority or one of its panels will set rates that are currently set by TAMP. This is the only difference; everything else is the same
If you thought that a new law planned to govern 11 of the 12 ports owned by the Indian government would solve the complex rate-setting problems at these ports, think again. It is nothing but old wine in a new bottle.
