Coal India Ltd, the Paradip Port Authority, and the Inland waterways authority of India are planning to invest $1.46 billion to establish an industrial water transport corridor in Odisha. The corridor would connect two ports, transport 12 to 15 million tonnes of cargo by 2030, and primarily carry finished products such as steel, aluminum, sponge iron, and fertilizers.
