I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 10. PORT LIGHT HOUSES AND SHIPPING

 II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 The Lakshadweep islands lies isolated towards the west cost of Indian peninsula and the shipping services are the primary means of transportation of men and material between the islands and the mainland. Port Light Houses and Shipping sector augment the necessary infrastructure for Shipping Services such as procurement of passenger and cargo ships, inter-island ferries and crafts for ship to shore transport of men and material and other cargo handling equipments, jetties, procurement and fabrication of mooring buoys etc. Construction of mini airstrips at five islands and a dedicated berth at Kochi for Lakshadweep ships are also proposed during the IX Five Year Plan period. Due to the increase in number of vessels operating in Lakshadweep, the passenger and cargo operations are on a regular basis at the Kavaratti. Hence it is proposed to declare Kavaratti as a major port.

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Delivery of 1st vessel in 2009.

 

c) (Component Name)                : Acquisition of 400 pax ship

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : In order to meet the increasing demand of passenger requirement and increase the connectivity between the islands and the mainland, the perspective plan for shipping requirements of Lakshadweep upto 2015 has recommended acquisition of one 400 pax ship. EFC proposal was submitted for acquisition of one 400 pax ship. There are only 3 all weather ships in Lakshadweep out of which two are very old ships. The newly constructed 700 passenger vessel M.V.Kavaratti has been out of service four times in the last one year. M.V.Bharat Seema and Tipu Sultan are on extended life. The rest of the passenger vessels are all small fair weather vessels which remain out of service from mid May to end of September every year on account of South West Monsoon. Due to increase in population and passenger trend of Lakshadweep, the frequency of travel to mainland has increased. One 400 passenger vessel for Lakshadweep and two such vessel for ANI are about to be tendered. To fill the acute scarcity of shipping capacity and to take advantage of economies of scale, the planning recommended to go for one more 400 passenger vessel.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : EFC clearance being accorded for 2 Nos 400 pax ships

 

d) (Component Name)               : Acquisition of multi purpose cargo vessel

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : At present there are only 4 cargo barges of 600 Mt in operation since 1997 onwards which are having a normal speed of 6 knots. These barges are used for transportation of essential commodities, petroleum products as well as building materials and other house hold items. At times it find difficult for transporting even essential commodities to the 10 islands in time. Hence it is proposed to procure one cargo vessel for the purpose.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    :

 

e) (Component Name)                : Acquisition of Landing Barges

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Until now the department has been depending on conventional small Pablo boats for passenger embarkation/disembarkation. There are many disadvantages in this system. With growth of passengers traffic additional number of boats have to be acquired leading to heavy investment both for acquisition as well as maintenance of boats. Small boats are able to carry only limited passengers. To overcome these 2 problems perspective plan for shipping requirements envisaged acquisition of Landing barges capable of carrying about 200 passengers at a time.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Orders placed for acquisition of 6 landing  barges. EFC approval for another 2 Landing Barges accorded by Govt. of India.

 

f) (Component Name)                : Acquisition of Oil Barge

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Since the no of inter island ferries and boats are increasing, the requirements of fuel is also going on increasing. At the moment, only one oil barge with a capacity of 60 MT is used as a floating storage for fuel for the existing ten IIFs/High speed crafts which totally insufficient to meet the requirement. Hence it is proposed to procure one150 MT oil barge  to meet the bunkering requirement of speed ferries at different islands.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Tender under finalization with SCI

 

g) (Component Name)               : Acquisition of LPG ship

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : At present, the LPG is transported through the cargo barges as deck cargo and hence only a limited number of 600 cylinders can be carried at a time. Hence LPG is made available at only two islands. It is proposed to procure one LPG Ship capable of carrying 2500-3000 cylinders to enable the Administration to extend the LPG supply to other islands.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Tender under finalization with SCI

 

h) (Component Name)                : Acquisition of Fuel Supply Vessels

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : 7 speed ferries are acquired during 2007-08 and it is proposed to station these ferries at three/four major islands as base port. There will not be facility for taking bunker from larger vessel and supply fuel to these vessels stationed at other islands. Hence it is proposed to procure small fuel supply vessels.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    :

 

i) (Component Name)                 : Acquisition of All weather speed ferries

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Though the UTL fleet has 10 speed ferries, none of them is capable of operating during monsoon season. Similarly there are three fair weather ships of 150 passenger capacity, which are also remaining out of service during monsoon season. Hence this administration always faces difficulties to provide minimum transport connectivity of 11 inhabited islands with mainland ports, during monsoon periods. The administration proposes to operate short voyages of the existing all weather ships from mainland to any hub island and connect the other islands with the help of high speed crafts. Therefore, it is proposed to procure 5 Nos of all-weather 100 passenger High Speed Ferry during the plan period.

ii) Description of the component            : With the increase of number of crafts it has become difficult to attend the annual preventive maintenance and other repairs of all the crafts with the existing workshop machineries. Hence it is proposed to procure required workshop machineries to establish main marine workshops at Kavaratti, Minicoy and Kadmat and mini workshops at all other islands.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    :

 

b) (Component Name)               : Augmentation of Slip Way and repair yard

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Regular and duly planned maintenance scheme and availability of sea shore yard will ensure optimum use of equipment resources available and preventive maintenance schemes will also be improved to avoid breakdown of IIFs/Tugs/Seagoing vessels/Boats and other equipments. At present only wooden crafts of the administration are able to beach for repairs. In order to enable high speed ferries and other heavy crafts to haul up for emergency repairs, augmentation of a slip way is required. This will also enable the administration to save much time since taking the vessels to mainland for minor repairs can be avoided. Hence it is proposed to augment a slip way and repair yard at Kavaratti.

a) (Component Name)                : Procurement of mooring buoy

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : As there are no berthing facilities in the islands for safer discharging operations, the ships have to be either anchored or moored. Dropping the anchor every time  is neither feasible nor environmentally advisable. Therefore mooring buoys have to be laid in all the islands where there are no berthing facilities. It is proposed to procure new mooring buoys to replace old mooring buoys in the islands wherever necessary.

b) (Component Name)               : Procurement of channel marker buoys

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Only small vessels/crafts with 2meter draft will be able to enter the lagoons. The existing cargo barges having a draft of 2.70 meter has started entering the lagoons of some of the islands which has proved to be safe and quick in discharging cargo. Also 7 speed ferries are expected to be inducted into service from 2006-07. Channels are required to be maintained properly and marked with channel buoys. Lying of channel buoys in all islands and off spray buoys are to be taken up during the plan period for facilitating the operation of small crafts

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : laid bouys in 2 islands

 

c) (Component Name)                : Berthing/foreshore facilities

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The breakwaters have been constructed at Andrott / Kalpeni and berthing facilities in existing jetties is proposed to be constructed in the remaining islands for berthing iifs/tugs/boats.

d) (Component Name)               : Modification of jetties/installation of tressles

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

ii) Description of the component            : In the absence of berthing facilities for the ships jetties have been constructed on the western side lagoon to facilitates the movements for passengers/cargoes. Over the years with the growth of both passengers/cargoes traffic these jetties are found to be inadequate to take care present day requirements. Also the RCC jetties were constructed 25 years ago and jetty being the landing point of both passenger and cargo, due to continuous usage by heavy vehicles as well as berthing of crafts alongside, the RCC structural are damaged severely. Hence there is the need to repair and modify the jetties to suit the present day requirements.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    :

 

e) (Component Name)                : Silt Clearance

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Because of the action of the monsoon i.e. wind and current, silt deposited is causing major problems in all islands for the movements of small crafts inside the channel and lagoon. Dredging is not allowed. The best one can do to ensure free movement of IIFS boats and small and medium crafts in the channel is to clear the silt from time to time. It is proposed to clear the silt in the entrance channels, turning circles and berthing heads at jetties of 9 islands.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : 2

 

f) (Component Name)                : Hydrographic survey

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Before installation of Buoys such as mooring buoys and channel buoys detailed survey and investigation have to be conducted in order to examine the bathymetry around the area. Also for enabling safe navigation, required navigational charts have to be prepared after detailed survey. Hence it is proposed to conduct hydrographic survey at all islands.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : 1

 

g) (Component Name)               : Navigational aids/ control towers

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Control Towers in 9 islands and at mainland ports of Kochi, Beypore and Mangalore is functioning under the administration. Also a lot of passenger boats, tugs, launches and search and rescue boat are owned by the administration. Besides a lot of Motorised Sailing vessels are operating between Beypore/Mangalore and the islands.  For safe operation of these crafts reliable communication systems need to be maintained between shore and marine crafts. It is procure communication equipments for marine crafts and Vessel Traffic Management Systems for the control towers. The control towers have been constructed years back and it has to be modified to suit the latest requirements. Therefore it is proposed to modify the control towers and equip with communication and other navigational aids and generators etc for ensuring uninterrupted communication network. This will remove the bottlenecks of non operation of the communication equipments due to power failure in situations like cyclone which islands had witnessed.

a) (Component Name)                : Dedicated berth and terminal facilities at Kochi

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : There are 5 passenger ships, 4 cargo barges, 2 IIFs, one oil barge and one bullard tug in UTL fleet of ships. One 700 pax 160 MT cargo ship as a replacement of M.V.Tipu Sultan, seven speed ferries and one bullard tug are inducted into service from 2008. Besides 12 new ships as recommended in 15 years perspective plan are under acquisition. When these vessels make frequent trips to mainland, they will find difficulty in getting berthing facilities in time at the mainland ports. Besides ships owned by the Administration, a lot of MSVs transporting cargo to the islands are plying between Beypore/Manglore and the islands.  Lack of availability of berthing facility in time of need have been felt at Kochi/ Beypore in the case of vessels to Lakshadweep. Since the berthing at Kochi Port is being done at one of the cargo berths, many a time, embarkation and disembarkation get delayed for hours together due to the non-availability of berth, causing hardship especially to the passengers. It also affects the movement of cargo between mainland and the islands and our cargo barges are often shifted from one berth to another. Hence it is proposed to construct a dedicated berth at Kochi for easing the burdens faced by the islanders and also the Tourists boarding to Lakshadweep from Kochi. The Cochin Port Trust has agreed to provide the required water front and land required for constructing a 300m long x 12m wide berth towards the south of South Coal Berth and the estimated cost is Rs.27.50 crores. The feasibility of the project has been conducted by m/s KITCO Kerala and the proposal is to be submitted to the Ministry for approval.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Approval of GOI accorded. MOU signed with CoPT, Kochi.

 

b) (Component Name)               : Dedicated berth and terminal facilities at Beypore/ Azhikkal/ Kollam/ Mangalore

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The rush in the available ports at Kochi/Beypore/Manglore can be avoided once alternate ports at Azhikkal and Kollam are developed. Now the Kerala Govt. is in the process to developing the ports at Azhikkal and Kollam.The opening of a port at Kollam will also facilitate operation with the southern most island Minicoy as Kollam is much nearer to Minicoy than Kochi or Beypore. Hence it is proposed to augment berthing and terminal facilities for the Lakshadweep ships/vessels at Beypore, Azhikkal, Kollam and Mangalore

a) (Component Name)                : Construction of mini airstrips

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : From 1987 this department is operating a Dauphin helicopter leased from Pawan Hans Helicopter Ltd. as an ambulance helicopter for medical evacuation of patients from other islands to Kavaratti and Mainland. The same is also used for inter island passenger service especially during monsoon, when fair weather ships viz. IIFs/Dweep Setu/ and other inter-island services comes to a stop. This Helicopter is also used for coordinating the operation of daily flights by Indian Airlines in Agatti-Kochi sector. All these major works are being done with only one helicopter which alone cannot meet the traffic demands and other requirements. It is proposed to introduced mini aircraft service at five islands viz. Kavaratti, Minicoy, Kadmat, Kiltan and Andrott. The lands have been identified and the Environmental Impact Assessment Study at Andrott and Minicoy is being completed. At present night landing facility for the helicopter is not available in the helipads.It is proposed to provide Night landing facilities / fuels storage/refueling facilities in all airfields for timely evacuation of patients. Necessary infrastructure required for mini airstrips and for operation will be provided under this scheme. It is proposed to provide transponders/NDBs/mobile bowsers and other equipments and items relating to navigational aids. The land required for storage facilities will be made available by acquiring land/ leasing.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Environmental Impact Study done at Minicoy.

 

b) (Component Name)               : Extension of Agatti Airport

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : At present the Indian Airlines is operating a dornier flight from Agatti airport. It is proposed to identify the land required for expansion of the airport by extending the runway for enabling operation of aircrafts of higher capacity from Agatti Airport.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Lands identified for acquisition

 

c) (Component Name)                : Acquisition of helicopter

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The department is operating a dauphin helicopter leased from Pawan Hans Helicopters Limited as a medical ambulance for evacuating serious patients from other island to Kavaratti and Mainland as advanced medical facilities are not available in the islands. The same helicopter is used for co-ordinating the operation of Indian Airlines dornier flight from Agatti. During monsoon season the connectivity between the islands are very limited since the islands lie isolated in the deep sea and all the inter-island ferry service and fair weather ships are out of service owing to high swells and adverse conditions in the ocean. Therefore the administration has been using the above helicopter for inter-island connectivity during this period. Due the increase in the requirement of patient evacuation as well as passenger movement, the passenger carrying capacity of the helicopter was enhanced to N3 type dauphin helicopter from 1st September 2006 onwards. However the monthly rental and fixed hourly charges are on the higher side. Therefore , it is proposed to acquire two helicopters with ground support equipments from HAL having 12 seater capacity during this plan period at an estimated cost of Rs.575.00 Lakhs.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Operation of a second helicopter on lease approved by GOI.

ii) Description of the component            : Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Civil Aviation felt that for the Lakshadweep group of islands, the introduction of seaplane operation will help to maintain inter-island connectivity in a befitting way round the year. This will also attract foreign/domestic tourists to the islands. Accordingly the Ministry of Home Affairs desired to conduct a feasibility study for introduction of seaplane operation in the islands. The Lakshadweep Administration had held a meeting of all the stake holders like Ministry of Civil Aviation , Director General of Civil Aviation , Airport Authority of India and Pawan  Hans Helicopters Limited on 29.09.2007 and 01.10.2007 wherein all the agencies recommended for introduction of seaplane operation in the islands after a feasibility study conducted by Pawan Hans Helicopters Limited. Accordingly an Indo-Canadian Team under the guidance of Ministry of Civil Aviation and Pawan Hans Helicopters Limited has visited these islands on 25th & 26th October 2008 and carried out the feasibility study for introduction of seaplane operation in Lakshadweep. They have recommended to introduce the seaplane operation in the islands and also recommended to create minimum infrastructure for the purpose. Seaplane are being operated in the islands of Maldives which are also similar group of coral islands towards the southern side of Lakshadweep. Hence it is proposed to develop the infrastructure for operation of seaplanes at five islands and charter seaplanes for operation during this plan period.

a) (Component Name)                : Development of terminal facilities

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : With the induction of new ships and due to increase in propensity among the people of Lakshadweep to travel between islands and mainland for various developmental activities, the passenger traffic has increased. There are only passenger halls like cargo sheds and no proper terminal facilities are there in the islands leading to inconvenience and hardships for the passengers. It is proposed to modify the existing passenger halls and expand the same by providing minimum facilities for comfort and entertainment for passengers traveling in ships as well as helicopters. At present there are no facilities for screening of passengers at Kochi as well as in the islands due to which the Lakshadweep passengers are subjected to manual checking of all the baggages. Therefore, it is proposed to procure X-Ray machines for screening of passengers at Kochi and Kavaratti. 

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Proposals for construction of 2nd hanger for helicopter at Kavaratti being processed.

 

b) (Component Name)               : Reconstruction/ expansion of Port Office building

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The structure of the present office building needs to be modified to suit increasing volume of works due to acquisition of new ships, passenger and cargo planning and transportation etc. Since Shipping is the lifeline of the islanders, the nature of works are mostly public related. It is proposed to modify the existing structure into a modern office.

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Requirement submitted to PWD

 

c) (Component Name)                : Construction of AFS Stores

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : Due to the demolition of Barkat Bhavan at Kavaratti, the department has lost it store for keeping HSL and other stores of boats and crafts. It is proposed to construct a store for the purposed in the premises of passenger jetty. The refueling facilities for helicopters are at present available only at Kavaratti & Agatti. There are no proper AFS Stores in the islands for storing the fuel etc. Due to non availability of refueling facilities at farther islands from Kavaratti is leading to wastage of passenger carrying capacity of the helicopter as fuel has to be carried for return journey by curtailing the number of passengers. Hence it is proposed to construct AFS Stores at five islands

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    : Requirement submitted to PWD

 

d) (Component Name)               : Expansion of helipads

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The existing helipads in the islands need to be expanded for safe landing and taking off of helicopters since there are two N3 helicopters in operation in the islands. Therefore it is proposed to expand the helipads in three islands during the current year. It is also proposed to construct a hanger at Kavaratti for the second helicopter chartered from 10th Jan 2009 onwards

 

iii) Achievement (if continuing)    :

 

e) (Component Name)                : Expansion of Port Workshop

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The present building of Port Workshop is not sufficient to accommodate the stores and equipments due to increase in number of departmental crafts. Therefore the present Port Workshop building is proposed to be expanded during the current plan period.

4. Objectives of the scheme (Separately for each component)

 

a) (Component Name)                : Grant for creation of Port Management Board & related operations

 

i)  Whether continuing/new         : Continuing

 

ii) Description of the component            : The whole Shipping, Port and Aviation activities of the Administration are being looked after by a single department which includes ship acquisition and development of Port infrastructure projects in the islands and mainland, and operation of ships and helicopter etc, Since all these tasks are implemented and monitored by a single department under the Administration, it is difficult to provide timely and convenient services for the citizens. Transport being the lifeline, the hurdles and chaos in the operation need to be sorted out and removed on priority giving due importance to remove administrative delays in the implementation of proposals. This can only be achieved through bifurcations of the activities by establishing Port Management Board and Directorate of Shipping and a centralised workshop system for the Administration which would be a unique attempt to systematic up-gradation of the transport sector. Hence it is proposed to constitute a Port Management Board and Directorate of Shipping for the Lakshadweep Administration similar to Andaman and Nicobar islands.

 

The Directorate of Shipping shall maintain the shipping services by providing daily connectivity in the mainland-island and inter-island sectors for the people of Lakshadweep and the visiting of tourists. The directorate shall also maintain credible shipping schedules for passenger and cargo vessels in selected routes to assist the UTL Administration in transportation of essential commodities to various islands.

 

The Port Management Board so created will look after the management of UTL ships and Port Activities in all the islands and mainland ports from where the UTL ships operate. Following will be the functions of the board:

 

  • To provide vessels related services such as Pilotage , berthing/un-berthing
  • Embarkation/ disembarkation of passengers and loading unloading of cargo
  • Cargo handling facilities for cargo and its delivery
  • To make regulation of the conservancy and safety of harbour
  • To frame set of charges for handling shipping and storage of goods and other property
  • To provide and maintain maritime communication system and to provide navigational aid for
  • safe berthing/mooring of ships
  • Maintenance of passenger hall with all modern facilities, night shelter , x-ray screening,
  • medical examination facilities, parking place etc to the passenger.
  • To provide cargo handling equipment at the Port
  • Supply of water to the vessels.
  • Maintenance of port facilities in all the islands/mainland
