So far, the state government has acquired 2,400 acre and needs to buy rest 1,500 acre to enable the private company to start construction.

Navayuga Engineering Company (NECL) is the developer for the minor port, which will be built with total investment of more than Rs 6,500 crore. The initial capacity of the port will be 25 million tpa which will be eventually enhanced further to 70 million tpa.
