To get innovative ideas and suggestions from general public and experts for improvement of Indian maritime sector, Union Minister of Shipping, Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari launched a website ‘Shipping Samvad’.
The ideas and suggestions submitted through this portal will be further examined for implementation by Ministry of Shipping and the workable ideas and suggestions will be published on this website. The Ministry of Shipping will also select the best five contributions in the year.
In a bid to bring transparency and blue revolution in the country, the ministry will also upload the draft policies/new initiatives from time to time on the portal for the valuable suggestions/feedback from the citizens.
The initiative is meant to engage the experts and common public in the development of Shipping, Ports and Inland Waterways in India and will provide impetus to the Ministry of Shipping in its efforts.
