Kandala port is located in Kachchh in the state of Gujarat. Kandala port trust is also called Deendayal port trust. It was the first port to be developed after independence. The port of Kandla was first considered to take up the mantle of being India’s port of choice in its western side, in the mid-19th century. Post the partition of India and Pakistan and the natural amalgamation of the Karachi Port with the whole of Pakistan, led to a huge initiative being taken in developing the Kandla port. Resultantly, immediately after the partition, infrastructural developments began to contemporise the Kandla Port to cater to the marine vehicular traffic. The over-utilisation of the port of Mumbai also became an additional catalyst requiring the extensiveness of the infrastructural advancements.
