Sagarmala is an ambitious port-led infrastructure development programme of the government to harness India's 7,500-km coastline and its perspective plan was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in April.

Using the right infrastructure and institutional support, India can coastally move 190 to 200 million tonne per annum (MTPA) of coal, and save around Rs 17,000 crore per annum, by 2025.

In 2013-14, nearly 740 MTPA of coal moved through the country predominantly through rail and of this barely 23 MTPA moved through coastal shipping even though this mode costs one-sixth that of rail cost at about 20 paisa per tonne against about Rs 1.2 per tonne.
