"Paradip Port achieved the handling of 100 Million Metric Tonnes (MMT) of cargo fourth year in a row. Despite COVID-19 crisis, it once again repeated the feat by crossing the 100 MMT mark in succession and achieved cargo throughput of 100.30 MMT till 21.02.2021 in the current fiscal," Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways said in a statement.
