Ahmedabad, 30 June 2012
A new campus of Indian Maritime University(IMU) will come up over 12.6 acre land in Gandhidham. This was announced by IMU Vice Chancellor Mukesh Baveja yesterday in Kandla.
Baveja said that Kandla Port Trust has already allotted a piece of land for IMU. He said that central Shipping Ministry has given its approval to purchase a ship for cadets.
Baveja was in Gandhidham to give away certificates of Diploma in Nautical Science to 30 cadets of first batch of IMU’s Gandhidham centre. This center had started working in August 2011.
Addressing the cadets, KPT Chairman PD Vaghela said that Gujarat contributes 33% of total cargo handling in India. He said the state has ship building, ship handling and ship breaking facilities on large scale, and therefore a full scale Maritime University campus is necessary here.
