Entire visit was sponsored by the institute. There were 2 faculty members accompanied students, viz, Dr. Rupendra Gaikwad and Prof. Pranjal Jadhav.
We left the IMERT campus at 7.00 am on 14th February 2019 and reached JNPT at 10.30 am. All the arrangements were ready from JNPT officers. The visit began formally at 11.00 am by a presentation, which was delivered by Mr. R. R. Gaikwad, Dy. Manager, PP&D Department, JNPT. It was a very informative presentation with all statistical data related with business of JNPT. After presentation, a model of JNPT was shown to the students. Then we left administration office for visiting actual port/jetty along with Mr. Ravi Gharat, Marketing Department, JNPT. The students were amazed looking at giant ships parked at the jetty. All operations were live. Container handling was shown to the students. While observing these operations, Mr. Ravi Gharat was giving the information about ships, tug boats, containers, weight & goods inside of the containers, cranes and the business contributed by each ship. Mr. R. R. Gaikwad joined us again on the jetty. He informed our students about number of jetties, modernization of operations, privately operated jetties, etc. After this information on the jetty, we moved to container yard, refrigeration facility for the containers containing perishable goods, scanning of containers, rail transport of containers, gantry cranes, etc. Then we went to the canteen of JNPT for lunch.
All of the students received the information about formation of JNPT, its importance in the Indian economy, its contribution in the Indian business, its future plans, etc. and with smiling faces we left JNPT premises.
Then we visited National Institute of Securities Markets (NISM) on the way back from JNPT. The picturesque premises of NISM has been spread over 75 acres and is located in Patalganga industrial belt of Raigad District near Navi Mumbai.
