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.
