NEW MAJOR PORT AT VADHAVAN IN MAHARASHTRA
Vadhavan port will be developed on “land lord model”
A Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) will be formed with Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) as the lead partner with equity participation equal to or more than 50% to implement the project.
The SPV will develop the port infrastructure including reclamation, construction of breakwater, besides establishing connectivity to the hinterland
Maharashtra has India’s largest container port at JNPT which caters to the hinterland of Maharashtra, North Karnataka, Telangana and secondary hinterland of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, NCR, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.
What is land lord port model ?
In the landlord port model, infrastructure is leased to private operating companies or to industries such as refineries, tank terminals, and chemical plants

SOIL HEALTH CARD SCHEME
In the second phase of the scheme 11.69 crore Soil Health Cards have been distributed to farmers in the last two years.
A study conducted by the National Productivity Council (NPC) says the application of Soil Health Card recommendations has led to a decline of 8-10% in use of chemical fertilizers and also raised productivity by 5-6%.
In the current financial year a pilot project “Development of Model Villages” is being implemented under which the sampling and testing of cultivable soil is being encouraged in partnership with the farmers.
Under the project a Model Village has been selected for aggregation of soil samples and analysis of each agricultural holding.
The scheme provides for the analysis of soil composition by the State Governments once in every two years so that remedial steps can be taken to improve soil nutrients. Farmers can track their soil samples and also obtain their Soil Health Card report
