Rs 30 cr for capacity building at ship recycling yard in Guj
New Delhi, Nov 30 (PTI) The government today said that Rs 30 crore has been sanctioned for capacity building and providing safety training to 20,000 workers engaged in ship recycling activities at Alang-Sosiya recycling yard in Gujarat.
In addition, Rs 13.77 crore has also been sanctioned for skill training in 27 coastal districts in convergence with Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY), the Ministry of Shipping said in a statement.
“In addition to this, to support the development of fishermen community, the Ministry is funding select fishing harbour projects under Sagarmala in convergence with Department of Animal Husbandry Dairying & Fisheries (DADF),” it said.
In this regard, Rs 13 crore has been sanctioned for the modernisation of the existing fishing harbour at Sassoon Dock, in Mumbai.
In-principle approval has also been obtained for upgrading the nine fishing harbours across Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat costing over Rs 50 crore. The Ministry will also be supporting the development of deep sea fishing vessels and fish processing centres in convergence with DADF.
The above action has been taken in consonance with the Ministry’s objective for sustainable development of the coastal areas as part of the Sagarmala programme.
A well-defined action plan to ensure holistic and sustainable development has been drawn as part of its National Perspective Plan. The coastal communities are recognised as critical stakeholders in the Sagarmala’s ‘port led development’ agenda. (MORE) PTI SID
