FM Nirmala Sitharaman visits Nhava Sheva


  • With Nhava-Sheva contributing nearly 20% of India’s Customs Duty revenue, the Minister surveyed not just the infrastructure, but also noted the revenue, security and facilitation roles performed by the Customs Officers.  
  • Ms. Sitharaman took special note of initiatives such as the single unified on-wheel export documentation centre and the Direct Port Delivery Logistics Programme which covers 60% of imports and is an option for the registered importers to take delivery of customs cleared cargo at the Port and thereby save on transportation and other costs.
