India's Steel Ministry has asked the state-run Steel Authority of India (SAIL) and Tata Steel to prepare a specific time-bound actionable point report to increase the use of inland waterway transport systems to reduce logistics costs.

Tata Steel has recently used inland waterways to transport steel products under an agreement, while it has also used intermodal transport, delivering 25 tons of rebar from Kolkata to Assam, using the land border between the two countries.

The Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) has also recently proposed a US$24 million tender to improve the water depth along the route so that cargo-laden barges can move smoothly.
