JNPT Board has approved waiver of Rs. 728/- per container towards handling charges for all containers moved by rail to and from Inland Container Depot, Mulund on CONCOR rakes to be placed at JNPCT. ICD Mulund is strategically located & accessible by road & rail to the catchment area around Mumbai.
Similar waiver has been granted to 3 Container Freight Staions- Navkar, CWC and DRT on Exim containers which have either arrived through dedicated rakes or moved out through dedicated rakes placed on JNPCT lines. This initiative has been taken to encourage trade to shift to rail mode. This will be a win-win situation for all stakeholders and the local people, as this will decongest the roads & reduce pollution around the Port’s vicinity.
