The 75th Republic Day parade is history now. So is the tableaux presented by Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways (MoPSW) during the Republic Day parade.

It unveiled its Tableaux, a visual representation of the visionary Sagarmala Program, catalyzing Port-led development in alignment with the Hon’ble Prime Minister's vision. This flagship program has significantly reduced turnaround times, enhancing cargo handling efficiency across ports.

Consider this.

Highlighting the Ministry's commitment to gender inclusivity, the front portion of the tableaux showcases a remarkable 1100% increase in the number of women seafarers over the last 9 years. This symbolizes "Nari Shakti Driving the Blue Economy," a central theme of the "Sagar Samman" initiative.

The central segment proudly exhibits achievements in port efficiency and capacity augmentation through Sagarmala's modernization initiatives. Major ports have witnessed a substantial capacity boost, doubling from 800 MTPA to 1617 MTPA. Embracing new technology and modernization, Indian ports now boast a remarkable turnaround time of 0.9 days, aligning with global standards. The 'AmritKaal Vision 2047' introduces a Port-led industrialization initiative, set to develop industrial clusters around ports, ultimately reducing overall logistic costs and stimulating economic growth.

The rear portion of the tableaux highlights the Ministry's endeavors in lighthouse and cruise tourism development, aligned with the 'Swadesh Darshan' and ‘Dekho Apna Desh’ Scheme of the Government of India. This initiative aims to showcase India's rich maritime heritage and unlock the immense potential for cruise tourism.

“The Ministry's tableaux is a testament to the significant strides made in the maritime sector under the leadership of PM Modi, contributing to the nation's growth and prosperity. MoPSW is committed to increase the strength of our ‘Nari Shakti’ in the Maritime sector to keep pace with twenty-first century expectations.”  Shri Sarbananda Sonowal, Union Minister, MoPSW.

The confluence of "Maritime India Vision 2030" and "Maritime AmritKaal Vision 2047" stands as a powerful testament to India's unwavering commitment to steering its maritime sector toward a future marked by dynamism, sustainability, and global excellence. 

As we embark on this transformative journey, the visions collectively embody the aspirations of a nation determined to harness its vast maritime potential as a catalyst for economic growth.
