  The relaxation of age norms for purchase of ships was opposed by The National Union of Seafarers of India (NUSI). According to some ship owners, with the reason that maintaining rigid age norms prevents them from competing with big companies. While small ship owners cannot afford to buy new ships, those who can afford to buy new ships sail them beyond the stipulated age limits. NUSI will not allow its member-seamen to sail on ships, which are over 20 years old unless it is satisfied about their seaworthiness. The average life span of a ship is 25 years, but this varies with the type of vessel and how often it is sent for dry-docking. If age restriction is laid for purchase of ships, the same restriction should apply to prevent ships, which are newly brought but are used even after crossing 20 years of age.

  To attract more container traffic, Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) has proposed reducing the terminal handling charge (THC) by around 30 per cent Final notification on this issue will be introduce by the Tariff Authority for Major Ports (TAMP) in a month's time . To compensate for the cost of the new submarine pipeline between the marine oil terminal at Jawahar Dweep and the mainland, and the cost of modernization at the three oil jetties at the terminal, the port has asked TAMP to allow the port to increase the charges for using the wharf on POL (Petroleum, Oil & Lubricants) products by up to 40 per cent at the marine oil terminal. The proposal by MbPT to increase berth hire by 15 per cent on all vessels is pending before TAMP. MbPT says inspite of the changes , the charges will remain competitive as against charges levied by other ports.


Shipping company need no prior technical clearance for import of ships and vessels below 25 years of age as per the latest government guidelines on import of all types of ships and vessels without license. This is a sequel to the Exim policy 1997-2002 as amended on March 31, 2001.
