They want to make the yard more independent and productive. So they have planned to convert this into a separate entity through SPV which will be looking the operations of yard instead of GMB. Both the Gujarat government and the private company to be selected will hold operations in the SPV. Last year India's highest Court-Supreme Court has asked the Gujarat government to modernize the yard and make it an Eco friendly. Out of the 173 plots at Alang, around 100 measures 30 by 45 meters. And according to the Iron, Steel, Scrap and Ship breakers Association of India it is impossible to create an Eco friendly and worker safe ship breaking as ordered by the Supreme Court Of India.
