Indeed, this port is India’s answer to Gwadar Port of Pakistan. This port was inaugurated in December 2017. In January this year, India took over the operation of this port.

Budget has been reduced to Chabahar Port, symbolizing the friendship of Indo-Iran in the central budget. Anxiety has been observed in Iran’s diplomatic circles regarding this move of the Narendra Modi government. Chabahar Port’s allocation to the central budget has been reduced to Rs 45 crore, compared to Rs 150 crore last year. Although diplomatic sources have told INDIA TODAY that India is still committed to this project.
