Shipping is likely to lift the ban imposed on seafarers

Goa : Spelling good news for the seafaring community, the Union ministry of shipping is likely to lift the ban imposed on seafarers who had forged documents to qualify for shipping jobs.Minister of state for shipping Mansukh Mandaviya assured Ayush minister and minister of state for defence Shripad Naik that Goan seafarers, who were barred from applying for Indian Continuous Discharge Certificate, will be able to do so soon.

Naik was with Mandaviya in Delhi where he discussed the apprehensions of Goan seamen who were worried that they may not be able to return to their jobs on vessels. “Mansukh Mandaviya has said that the ministry has already started the process and assured that the ban will be ended and process for applying of Indian CDC will restart afresh,” said Naik after the meeting.Once implemented, the move will give relief to Goan Seafarers who had been debarred for five years from applying to Indian CDC because they obtained forged SSC certificates and certificates of the mandatory Standards of Training, Certification and Watch-keeping (STCW) courses without attending any classes.
