The country’s oldest significant port is at Kolkata. However, the foundation of the current Kolkata Port dates back much further, to when the Moghal Emperor Aurangzeb granted trading privileges to the British Settlement in Eastern India. The port and the city of Kolkata work in harmony. Over time, the British Crown took over control of this enormous nation from the East India Company. With the creation of a Port Commission in 1870, the government gained administrative control over the port’s operations.
