Modernisation of ports, port-led industrialisation and
enhancement of port-connectivity will be the key drivers for socio-economic development of coastal areas under Sagarmala.
More than 200 projects have been identified for implementation in the coastal regions which are expected to generate employment opportunity of approximately 1 crore, including 40 lakh direct jobs by 2025.
The programme, through its skill development initiatives, will broaden the livelihood options especially for coastal communities and adequately equip them with enhanced skill set to increase their employability and standard of living.
In this regard, the Ministry of Shipping is undertaking a skill gap analysis in 23 coastal districts in phase one to understand the demand-supply gap in these districts with special emphasis on skill requirements in the ports & maritime sector.
To provide skilling for port and port user community, the Ministry will organise cutting-edge skill training in ports & maritime sector and is evaluating the proposal for setting up of Multi-Skill Development Centres linked to Major Ports.
The Ministry of Shipping is also promoting coastal tourism for providing more livelihood opportunities for coastal communities by developing lighthouses as tourist destinations and promoting cruise tourism in India. PTI SID MR
