The Andhra Pradesh government has invited Adani Ports and SEZ Limited to be part of the project to develop a deep sea port in an extent of 9,200 acres of the sea-front area on the Machilipatnam coast.
Machilipatnam Urban Development Authority (MUDA) Vice-Chairman P Wilson Babu was quoted as saying by The Hindu: “An extent of 9,200 acres is available for developing an integrated port, which includes a logistics hub. The government has completed its talks with the Adani group.”
It may be recalled that the State government, in August, had scrapped the agreement signed with the Navayuga group for development of the port and took back 400 acres of land allotted to it for the purpose.
Last month, MUDA prepared a report on the availability of land, earmarking nearly 1,000 acres adjacent to the proposed port area for the Integrated Logistics Management Zone (ILMZ), said the report.
