Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation the second multi-modal terminal built at Sahibganj in Jharkhand on 12 September 2019. The terminal was developed at a cost of Rs 290 crore.


The project was completed in two years. It is constructed on the river Ganga under Jal Marg Vikas Project (JMVP). The work on the project was commenced on 10 November 2016 and consists of jetty with a length of 270 mtr x width 25 mtr with berthing and mooring facility.

The multi-modal terminal will open up industries of Jharkhand and Bihar to the global market and provide Indo-Nepal cargo connectivity through waterways route. It will play an important role in transportation of domestic coal from local mines in Rajmahal area to various thermal power plants located along National Waterway-1. Other than coal, stone chips, fertilisers, cement and sugar are other commodities expected to be transported through the terminal.

The project will also help to create direct employment for about 600 people and indirect employment for about 3,000 people in the region. The convergence of Road-Rail-River Transport at Sahibganj through the new terminal will connect this part of the hinterland to Kolkata, Haldia and further to the Bay of Bengal.

Also, Sahibganj will get connected to the North-East states through Bangladesh by river-sea route. The capacity of the terminal is 30 lakh tpa. It will grow to 54.8 lakh tpa after an investment of Rs 376 crore for capacity enhancement in Phase-II under PPP mode.

The development in Phase-II will be entirely made by a private concessionaire. Further, a freight village is also proposed on 335 acre of land in contiguity with the terminal.

The MMTs are being built as part of the Jal Marg Vikas Project that aims to develop the stretch of River Ganga between Varanasi to Haldia for navigation of large vessels up to 1,500-2,000 tonne weight, by maintaining a drought of two-three mtr in this stretch of the river and setting up other systems required for safe navigation.
