Development Of Haldia Dock Complex
There was wide argument among experts that port facilities need improvement, partly to cater to the requirement of growing volume of trade, and partly to economies the cost of sea transportation. Gross (1967), argued that more than 75.0 percent of the total tonnage of sea-borne cargo all over the world consisted of oil or dry bulk commodities (such as grain, ore, coal, sugar, and fertilizer) and these were carried in ships in which the increased size would lead to a market economy in operating cost. Hence the construction of a new dock system at Haldia, midway between the sea and Calcutta Port, was planned.

A number of investigations were successively made into the need, justifiability and prospect of the development of a port at Haldia. Experts suggested that investigations should be made to select a suitable site for a subsidiary or satellite port where deep draft vessels could come. It was expected that with rapid expansion of industrialization in the area the trade passing through the port of Calcutta would considerably increase and continue to do so for many years to come. To cope with this Calcutta Port required additional port handling facilities and hence the establishment of an auxiliary port nearer the sea was necessary.

An immediate necessity was the construction of a river side jetty for the handling of crude oil and petroleum products so that the refinery at Barauni would be supplied with crude. The construction on the oil jetty commenced in June 1965 and was completed in July 1968 along with a pipeline connecting the jetty with the Barauni Refinery. The civil construction work of the lock and dock berths started in January 1968 and the dock system was opened to internatical shipping in 1977. Growth of Haldia Dock Complex that started its functioning in 1968 got momentum with the commissioning of Haldia Port in 1977.

The new deep water modern dock system was established at Haldia, 56.5 nautical miles downstream of Calcutta aimed to effectively serve the needs of trade and industry in keeping with the technological changes in shipping and cargo handling practices to handle modern bulk carriers and oil tankers. A full-fledged container terminal has also been developed for expeditious movement of general cargoes in containers. It was the first comprehensive port project in India, providing composite cargo handling facilities and lending support to the growth of port oriented industry.

The Port at Haldia was expected to be supplementary to the Port of Kolkata for accommodating the larger ships round the year, unhampered by the tortuous bends or bars in the river Hooghly. Haldia industrial complex evolved based on the development of the port facilities. The port being an economic infrastructure served to handle coastal and overseas traffic and thus served to be a sine qua non for development of the region, development implying change to describe the process of economic and social transformation. It provided a direct access to world markets and an excellent opportunity for developing trade with a wide range of countries, without costly intermediaries and was also an excellent source of employment of workmen and commercial personnel in numerous activities connected with administration, port operations and maintenance, and with various auxiliary services to cargo and vessels.
