From 15th May to 13th September, Indira Dock will be tidal.
 
Since Indira Dock being tidal Navigation will only be allowed during flood tide, which will result in restriction of vessel to loa 152 meters and beam 22.86 meters. There could be only 2/3 movements in each tide and maximum permissible draft will be reduced to 8 mtrs, higher draft will be considered, depending  on tide.
 
The officers of CME, DC/ SDM and Dy Traffic Manger are working on the finer aspects and will issue a circular  within a day.
 
Shipping agents association other port users were persuading the port to postpone this repairs, as Traffic Dept and DC department were not in favor  this repairs in monsoon. But due to financial implication the Port Chairman has not agreed.
