Following are the problems faced by ports in India.
i. India does not have natural harbours. Due to this reason, it takes a substantial capital to develop the infrastructure required for ports.
ii. Indian ports are not well connected to their hinterland.
iii. There is a lack of co-ordination amongst different ports causing frequent delays in the entire logistic plan.
iv. Indian ports lack facilities and are very congested.
v. A number of Indian ports are affected by silting and hence require frequent dredging.
