In course of time, the power to rule this vast country passed from the East India Company to the British Crown. The affairs of the Port were brought under the administrative control of the Government with the appointment of a Port Commission in 1870. The Kolkata Port was initially conceived to promote and protect the British colonial interest.But with the advent of freedom in 1947, the Port was called upon to champion the national cause. The Port took over the responsibility in the wake of the aftermath of Second World War and the partition of the country.

The Port which was once considered the most important port in the country still remains the premier port which has been rightly called the gateway to Eastern India and is the guiding factor to trade and commerce of vast hinterland comprising the entire Eastern India including Bihar and Eastern Uttar Pradesh and the two land-locked Himalayan Kingdoms of Nepal and Bhutan.The Commissioners for the Port of Kolkata ran the port until January 1975 when Major Port Trusts Act, 1963, came into force. The history of Kolkata Port has been a continuous story of struggle and success – it’s a saga of uninterrupted development, improvement, and achievements. Kolkata Port is a port of contrast and contradictions.

Kolkata Port is the only riverine Major Port in India, situated 232 km. upstream from the Sandheads, having arguably the longest navigational channel amongst Major Ports of India and its navigational channel is one of the longest in the world.At one end at Kidderpore, it has the lowest draft and the other end at Sandheads, it has the deepest draft (more than 50 meters) amongst Indian and world ports. What was described as “one of the best and most convenient ports out of Europe” by the Lt. Governor of Bengal in 1877, still retains a pre-eminent position among the nation’s ports on the strength of its infinite variety of availability of draft throughout 232 km long navigable channel.

It is not for nothing that it has been able to surpass every target set for it and set all-time records in almost every walk of port activity. It could attain this only because of its professionalism and commitment to perfectionism. In the recent past, Kolkata Port has been adjudged as the best-managed port in the country.Despite its being 126 miles away from the sea, Kolkata is, by far, the best choice for an eastern gateway to this continental country. Kolkata Port Trust remains one of the pioneering and most promising ports in India. It commands a vast hinterland that comprises almost half of the Indian states ( the neighboring whole of the eastern and north-eastern regions) neighboring countries – the Himalayan Kingdoms of Nepal and Bhutan. It has two dock systems – Kolkata Dock System at Kolkata with the oil wharves at Baj Baj and Haldia Dock Complex at Haldia – have a combination of facilities with a lot of attractive packages.

Kolkata Dock System (KDS): It is situated on the left bank of the Hooghly River at 22°32′53″N 88°18′05″E about 203 km (126 mi) upstream from the sea. The pilotage station is at Gasper/ Saugor roads, 145 Kilometres to the south of the KDS (around 58 km from the sea). The system consists of:[5]

  • Kidderpore Docks (K.P. Docks): 18 Berths, 6 Buoys / Moorings, and 3 Dry Docks
  • Netaji Subhas Docks (N.S. Docks): 10 Berths, 2 Buoys / Moorings, and 2 Dry Docks
  • Budge Budge River Moorings: 6 Petroleum Wharves
  • Anchorages: Diamond Harbour, Saugor Road, Sandheads

Apart from this, there are around 80 major riverine jetties, and many minor jetties, and a large number of ship breaking berths.

Haldia Dock Complex (HDC): It is situated at 22°02′N 88°06′E around 60 kilometers (37 mi) away from the pilotage station. The complex consists of:

  • Impounded Dock. System with 12 Berths
