‘Mumbai Port is fully operational & enables signing off of Indian crew of global vessels’

The Mumbai Port Trust has handled 321 ships and nine million metric tons of cargo during the coronavirus-induced lockdown period, Chairman Sanjay Bhatia said. The port is fully operational now, he said. Six cruise liners have arrived in the port since June 12 and some more are scheduled to dock to disembark Indian crew members stuck on these "floating luxury hotels" after the pandemic halted their operations at various places across the globe.

A total of 14 cruise liners are to dock at the Mumbai Port Trust to disembark 10,000 Indian crew members by June 28, Bhatia said in a statement.

He also said the port also continues to handle cruise liners at its facility, enabling signing off of Indian crew on board cruise ships around the world.
