Most of the Minor and Intermediate Ports were active till the 1970's when manual handling of bulk and break bulk cargo was the norm. With the subsequent trend towards containerization and pressure to reduce turn around time of vessels calling at ports, mechanization of cargo handling activities became essential. Ports are now required to be functional in all weather conditions. This implies substantial capital investments and efficient operations based on modern management practices. However, due to its constraints, the State Governments had been selective in making investments in modernization of Ports. Though basic infrastructure like breakwater, godowns were provided in some of the Ports, no significant investments were made to construct berths, linkages, and dredging. Consequently, these ports have remained underdeveloped thus unable to cater to even medium and small sized vessels.
