Cabinet approves moratorium to Cochin Port Authority

Cabinet approves grant of moratorium to Cochin Port Authority on repayment of GoI loans for a period of three years

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved a moratorium of three years (2020-21, 2021-22 & 2022-23) to Cochin Port Authority (CoPA) towards repayment of the balance outstanding Government of India (GoI) loans amounting to Rs. 446.83 crore to tide over the financial crisis due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The amount was to be repaid in 10 instalments commencing from 2018-19.  However, Cochin Port Authority could pay the instalments of 2018-19 and 2019-20 only.  From 2020-21, the traffic was badly impacted due to Covid-19 pandemic which adversely impacted the cash inflow.  As a result, Cochin Port could not pay the instalments of 2020-21 and 2021-22.

Cochin Port has been brought under the Major Port Authorities Act, 2021 with effect from November 2021.  The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on 24.08.2016 had approved the proposal for waiver of Penal interest on Government of India Loans taken by Cochin Port for various infrastructural developmental activities during 1936-37 to 1994-95.
