The global economic meltdown helps Indian Maritime Industry to get more young Indian seafarers

The global economic meltdown has proved to be a blessing in disguise to the Indian Maritime Industry as it will help them get more young Indian seafarers in future to mitigate the shortage of manpower. This was one of the moot points which came up at the 'Indian-Maritime Seminar 2008', which was held at Y B Chavan Cenre.

Great Eastern Shipping Corporation Limited General Manager Captain Pradeep Correa said ''nowadays lesser number of people are opting for seafaring as a career and for this, industry has been facing an acute shortage of manpower, thereby losing lucrative business opportunities.'' He attributed the manpower shortage to the differential 'Personal Income Tax' for the seafarers, norms of Indian Government regarding recruitment of people having foreign certificates, lengthy exam process which forces them to go to other countries and lack of awareness among the young people to attract them into the industry.

Talking about the new recruitment possibility due to the global economic crisis, Chief Surveyor to the Government of India A Chatterjee said apart from wage benefit, better training and modern facilities in the ships are steps that are needed to be taken on a priority basis to normalise the situation. These steps will attract the young seafarers to take up this profession as a career.

The seminar was organised by The Company Of Masters Mariners Of India.
