Development of Passenger
Water Transportation System along the West Coast of Mumbai.
The project proposed by the Govt. of Maharashtra is being
implemented through private sector participation by establishing
an infrastructure on Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT)
basis. This concept requires a selected developer as Licensee
(BOOT operator) to be vested with exclusive rights over
sea routes for a total concession -period of thirty years
(30yrs.) apart from providing passenger amenities at the
terminal building located at the prime locations of Mumbai.
At the end of concession period the licensee transfers all
on shore and offshore infrastructure to the state. However,
disposal of vessel fleet on completion of the concession
period remains to be the prerogative of the BOOT operator.
