Beypore thronged first by Romans and afterwards by Chinese, Syrians, Arabs and in recent centuries by Europeans for trade. Beypore has long history of being a centre for shipbuilding since the first century AD, and it was further expanded under the East India Company during the early nineteenth century. The Indian Ocean trade started from ancient times and strengthened during the medieval times. While in the old days Malabar directly traded with the Greeks and Romans, it concentrated on exchanges with the Middle Eastern ports in the medieval times. This exchange of goods resulted also in transfer of people from their abodes. While it is mentioned that Malabari’s were found along African ports and even Egypt’s, it was mostly Arabs who migrated to the Malabar coasts, mainly to administer, control and conduct the trade with their brethren in Yemen, Basra and Egyptian ports. Beypore was virtually free port with only an export import duty imposed by the ruling Zamorins. The intermediaries between the Arabs and the Nairs were the Moplah’s (themselves a community started by the intermingling Arab men and local women from ancient times). Also the south east Malay ports sent ships to Malabar for the cloth from Kerala, until British cloth took its place later in the 19th century. It was also a stop over for Hajj pilgrims from south east Asia. The Arab settlers in Malabar even had African slaves during that period.

Beypore was formerly known as known as Vaypura / Vadaparappanad. Tippu Sultan later named the town “Sultan Pattanam.According to Captain Iwata, founder member of the Association of Sumerian ships in Japan, Sumerian ships might have been built in Beypore. There are evidences to prove that Beypore had direct trade links with Mesopotamia and was a prominent link on the maritime silk route.

Beypore port is a Sub-port of Calicut port and is situated approximately 10 Km south of Calicut. It is an estuarine port, where Beypore river discharges into the Arabian Sea. Beypore is 180 km North of Cochin and 391 km away from Trivandrum. Beypore port is the second biggest port in Kerala after Cochin and currently handles about 100,000 tones of cargo per annum. The nearest competing ports are Kochi and Mangalore.storage shed, cranes and tugs. It is currently handling 100,000 tones of cargo traffic and 7500 passengers per annum. Now the port has a depth of about 4 meters alongside wharf and approach channel and it is proposed to be developed in stages. Beypore port is one of the oldest ports in Kerala from where trading was done to the Middle East.

New government has to revive Beypore port

Kozhikode: One of the development issues in Kozhikode that the new State government will have to address is revival of the Beypore port. The process initiated for developing the port by the LDF government did not make much headway as there were no takers for the tender for the port development project put out by the Ports Department.

Sources said fresh tenders would have to be announced. The re-tendering process would have to wait until a new government took over after the Assembly polls.

The sources said the Ports Department had decided to invite fresh bids for the development of ports at Beypore and Azhikkal, where also snag had cropped up.

A global tender was floated in February this year for a private partner for developing the Beypore port through the public-private partnership (PPP) route at a cost of Rs.163 crore.

However, it failed to attract any response even after the last date for submitting the tenders was extended following indications that some companies were interested in taking part in the tendering process.

After the tender failed to evoke any result, the Ports Department asked the firm that prepared the feasibility report for developing the Beypore port to revise some of the suggestions in the report.

Re-tendering of the Azhikkal port development project had also become necessary. A global tender floated in October last year for a private partner for developing the port had brought in Mundra Port and SEZ Ltd. as the lone bidder.

As against a project cost of Rs.463 crore envisaged by the department, the company submitted a Rs.3,000-crore proposal with the implementation of the project to be spread over two phases.

That proposal was in the context of a plan for setting up a mega coal-based power plant in the region. This would require large quantities of coal and the port was expected to handle the coal import. However, the government later decided to go in for a gas-based project in its place, thus doing away with the need for any coal import.

This had reportedly dampened the interest of the Mundra port in the project, forcing the department to plan re-tendering of the project for the Azhikkal port also.

KOZHIKODE: Thousands of people from Lakshadweep are stranded in the city due to the shortage of transport facilities to the islands. The situation has become worse as the largest vessel operating to the islands, MV Kavaratti with a passenger capacity of 700, is being docked for repair on August 1.
Ship repair getting delayed, Lakshadweep residents hit

Source informed that the service engineer of the vessel, which uses engine manufactured in Poland, has recently arrived from there and is examining the problem. It would take one more week to complete the repairing. Small problems of the engine are being repaired by an agency based in Mumbai. However, the agency, sources said, ruled since the issue is not a normal one service engineer had to come from Poland. His arrival was delayed due to visa problems.

"Since it is the peak season the authorities are trying run ships, which are available regularly," said a senior official with Lakshadweep Development Corporation in Kochi.

MV Amindivi and MV Minicoy, which were operating from Beypore Port near here, are also not operating during the monsoon period and being docked for maintenance and will commence operations only by September 15. However, sources said that it would be fortunate if they could restart functioning in October. Both the ships have capacity of 150 passengers.

"Since it iss being vacation time there is much demand for tickets and people are flooding to the booking office here on the given date for booking. Several people who came to Kozhikode for treatment have been trapped here for months. Their return has become a big question mark in the present scenario. "Since many of them are from middle and lower class, they cannot afford a travel by flight," said a source with Beypore centre.

Other ships operating to the islands are MV Bharatseema, with capacity of 380 passengers; MV Arabian Sea-250 passengers, and MV Dweepsetu-150 passengers.

Small ships cannot be operated from Beypore during the monsoon as conditions in the sea are not favourable. However, if the port has the capacity to handle big ships, they can operate from here.

The Lakshadweep development corporation, as per an agreement entered with ports department, is now in the process of building a separate jetty for running ships, both passenger and cargo, to and from the Islands.

Call to expedite Beypore port development

Quote:
The Kerala Government has been urged to expedite the development of Beypore port which has been pending for long, despite numerous studies having pointed to the significant contributions it can make to the development of Malabar region.

In a memorandum to the Minister for Ports, Mr K. Babu, Malabar Chamber of Commerce, has pointed out that Kochi port has become saturated and that the Vallarpadam terminal will only cater to big mother ships and container carriers. In these circumstances, there was an urgent need to develop small feeder ports in the State.

The movement of cargo from Kochi port and Vallarpadam container terminal to destinations in the Malabar region can be facilitated by the development of the Beypore port. That the development of small ports had played a major role in the growth of States like Gujarat and Maharashtra, should prompt taking firm steps to take the Beypore proposal ahead.

Development activities

The chamber notes that the port had seen some development activities in recent times, but they were all meant to boost the tourism potential of the area. But the movement of cargo should get priority over tourism in any port.

The Government should find the required land for the development of the port on a war-footing and prepare a comprehensive master plan. For one, the port should facilitate calling in of passenger ships from Gulf countries, as nearly two lakh people from the region work there and most of them are unable to fly home every year due to financial constraints.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The movement of cargo should get priority over tourism in any port.
