Railways Decides to Withdraw the Levy of Port Congestion Surcharge

  1. Context: Railways had applied a 10% congestion tax to moderate the import traffic at ports, particularly of iron ore, thermal coal, fertilizer and containers
  2. This tax had an adverse effect on the logistics cost and led to diversion of traffic from rail to road
  3. Railways are much more eco-friendly and hence there was a collective call to remove this tax
