About Andaman Lakshadweep Harbour Works                                   In Hindi

The Andaman Lakshadweep Harbour Works (ALHW) was set up by the Ministry of Surface transport in October 1965 and entrusted with the responsibility of formulating and implementing the programmes of the Government for providing Ports and Harbour structures including allied facilities in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep. A well-knit and coordinated Port/ Shipping system plays an important role in the sustained growth of the Islands. The need for Ports became more pronounced in these Islands in view of the accelerated development programs proposed by the Government during the sixties. The  infrastructure, therefore, had to be fully planned properly and in advance. The history of Port development in these Islands dates back as early as 1956 when  experts havelaid the foundation for development of Port facilities by the Andaman Lakshadweep Harbour works in later dates.   

  The ALHW has been implementing Port Development schemes from the Third Five Year Plan onwards.  All the works taken up under these plans have been completed in time and being maintained and operated successfully.
