Abstract


Instead of considering ports as one unit of analysis, the present paper explores the heterogeneity in their performance both at inter and intra-port levels through constructing a composite index of operational, financial, and trade indicators for the period 1990-91 to 2020- 21. The empirical investigation helps us to argue that over the years the performance of each port (intra-port) has improved significantly but inter-port comparison presents a different picture. In particular, a few ports like JNPT stands out as an outliner due to consistently better performance in all the parameters, whereas a few others like Haldia, Kolkata and Cochin ports lag far behind the performance ladder due to consistently poor performance in at least two of the performance indicators.
