Haldia Bulk Terminal in India, despite being allowed to remove handling equipment from its former concession at the port of Haldia, has been strictly forbidden by the courts from redeploying said equipment abroad. Earlier, Kolkata Port Trust had sought an injunction to prevent the equipment from being taken away by HBT, but this was declined by the judiciary.

The terminal operator had previously withdrawn from the port midway through a 10-year contract because of law and order problems.
