The government would be coming out with a programme on the lines of National Highway Development Project (NHDP) for the maritime sector. Speaking to FE, shipping and road transport minister TR Baalu said the programme would be implemented in phases and would be preceded by a maritime policy.

The programme would emerge out of the Sagarmala project which was conceived under the National Democractic Alliance government but could not take off since the Cabinet approval for the same could not be attained.
