Container traffic at major ports in India fell 6% in the April-October period, the first seven months of fiscal 2009-10, despite a 3.6% increase in overall tonnage.

The country"s 12 major ports handled 3.9m teu compared with 4.1m teu during the same period the previous fiscal year, the Indian Ports Association said in a statement.

Volume at JNPT, the country"s busiest container port, dropped 8% to 2.3m teu from 2.5m teu. Chennai, the second-largest box handler, moved 691,000teu, down 5% from 730,000teu. Traffic at Tuticorin decreased to 252,000teu from 270,000teu.

Consolidated cargo throughput at major ports for the seven-month period increased to 314.6m tons from 303.7m tons in the year-ago period, but fell short of the Shipping Ministry"s target of 333m tons.

The IPA figures indicate that the growth came mainly from bulk cargo handling that surged 11.6% on a year-on-year basis.

The western Port of Kandla topped volume at 46m tons, followed by Visakhapatnam at 38.5m tons.
