In the 1990’s under the Ashgabhat agreement, India partially built the port with the intention of providing access to the Central Asian region and Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan. A series of agreements were signed by the Indian Prime Minister and his counterpart, the  President of Iran in May 2016 in Teheran for developing the Chabahar port.  This move was initiated to promote exports to Iran and also possibility of connectivity to the Central Asian region and Afghanistan.
