The port man

Taking a leaf from the popular saying that you need right people for the right job, the government recently appointed Sanjay Bhatia, who was vice chairman and managing director of CIDCO, as Chairman of the Mumbai Port Trust (MPT). Bhatia, prior to his CIDCO assignment, was responsible for reforming the Sales Tax Department by introducing electronics returns and computerisation. His appointment at MPT assumes significance given Road Transport & Highway Minister Nitin Gadkari┬┤s plan to develop over 1,000 acre that is owned by the trust. The project will include development of three-four towers exclusively for financial institutions, a convention centre, marina, entertainment zone and cruise terminal in the MPT owned areas. In CIDCO, Bhatia was responsible for planning and development of Navi Mumbai and other new towns in Maharashtra including special projects like Metro and Navi Mumbai International Airport. He has also played an important role in restructuring of state-run Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) into three companies. And, with his new appointment, one is to see the new records Bhatia will create for the Trust. We wish him all the best!
