Dredging Corporation of India Limited, or DCI, is a Miniratna Indian public sector unit engaged in the business of dredging. DCI does dredging mainly for Indian seaports, though occasionally it dredges at foreign seaports in countries such as Taiwan and Dubai. It is mainly involved in maintenance dredging; almost all the maintenance dredging in Indian seaports is carried out by DCI. DCI is also involved in capital dredging, beach nourishment, and land reclamation. The main seaports in which DCI does business are Haldia and Paradip. The bulk of the dredging for the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project (SSCP) is also being carried out by DCI.

DCI is headquartered at Visakhapatnam and has project offices at many seaports in India. It reports to the Indian Ministry of Shipping.
