Development of Inland Shipping Port at Jalore, Rajasthan

The Inland Waterways Authority of India under the Ministry of Shipping proposes to guide and support Rajasthan government for building an Inland Shipping Port at Jalore. The port and the terminal that are to be created, will help develop inland navigation facilities in western Rajasthan and will also bring about socio-economic development of the region. Business development opportunities along the canal for limestone, gypsum, lignite and cement factories are to be explored by the state government. The pre-feasibility report of the project will be done by WAPCOS and they will submit the same within 5 months, duly monitored and guided by Inland Waterways Authority of India. A canal is proposed to be built between Mori creek and Jalore . This canal will be required to maintain a minimum draft of 3 meters. It is also proposed that existing cherras and rivers, like Luni may be explored for establishing connectivity from Jalore to Mori Creek. Efforts will be made to desalinate the water and use it for irrigation. This would help develop the drought resistant crops and improve the agrarian pattern in the region. The viability of saline resistant crops like soya will also be studied for improving the agricultural diversity along the canal. In addition to this there are plans to develop smart cities on this stretch. A study will also be undertaken on how to make the Indira Gandhi Canal navigable. The state government will take up the study to determine the requirements of width, cross structure along the canal, establishing vertical & horizontal clearance and bridges that need to be replaced with the cost associated with the project.
