Port Driving Permit cell inaugurated at JNPT

Mr Sanjay Sethi, IAS, Chairman, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), inaugurated the Port Driving Permit (PDP) cell on January 20, 2020 at the North Gate Complex at JNPT. The first 6 Port Driving Permits issued by JNPT-CISF were handed over to the respective drivers of cargo vehicles at the port in the presence of representatives of all terminal operators, transport associations, senior officials of JNPT and CISF.

The PDP cell will issue Port Driving Permit to the drivers of cargo vehicles entering the port premises. Every driver of heavy vehicles approaching the PDP cell of JNPT-CISF will be issued the permit after verification of driving licence and completion of safety training. The Port Driving Permit issued to the driver would be prominently displayed on arrival at the port gate, thereby eliminating the need for the driver to prove his credential at the gate on every visit. This is being done as part of JNPT’s initiative towards ease of doing business, to speed up the movement of cargo vehicles by easing the process of issuing passes. This would further reduce the time spent by the vehicle at the gate and thereby ease traffic at the gate, said a release. 

The safety department of JNPT, in conjunction with the safety cells of all port terminals, will carry out safety training prior to issuance of Port Driving Permit. It is also planned to incorporate the entire layout of the port, including the available utility services like medical, fire safety, among others, in the training module, which will further enhance safety and security.

JNPT is constantly innovating and upscaling operations to not only meet but exceed global benchmarks with an underlying commitment to provide seamless customer experience and ease of doing business. These efforts have helped it being credited for India improving its ranking in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index, especially under ‘Trading Across Borders’.

JNPT’s endeavours have been directed towards it being recognised among the world’s best container ports, the release emphasised.
