Major ports have reported only a tepid 1.9 pc cargo growth in the first five months of FY20 from 289 MT to 294 MT. Healthy volume growth in the container, crude and iron ore segments was offset by the decline in coal and some other bulk cargo volumes. As per ICRA note, the volume growth at major ports has been impacted by four pc fall in coal volumes (63.6 MT vs 66.3 MT) and some decline in fertilizer and liquid volumes. Coal volumes at major ports had grown 11 pc in FY19.
