Shipping Portal to be launched soon to ensure transparency & efficiency in the sector: Mansukh Mandaviya

Minister of State for Shipping, Mansukh Mandaviya, has said that a customer-centric, globally accessible Shipping Portal will be launched soon to provide common platform to all stakeholders Minister of state for Shipping Mansuk Mandaviya said on August 30th   in Mumbai.

He said that the portal will provide end-to-end solutions for various activities in the sector and will be totally secured. He was speaking to media on the sidelines of the Consultation on Shipping Portal with stakeholders.

He also said that the portal will ensure transparency and efficiency in the shipping/maritime sector as there will be minimum manual intervention as regards to issuing of certificates and approvals. On this portal, all training institutes, agents sending seafarers to other countries, and shipping companies will come together on a common platform. This will not only fulfil the dream of Digital India but will also pave the road for good governance.

 He further said that maritime sector is a rising sector and Directorate-General of Shipping plays a vital role. The Minister said that India has a 7,000-km long coastline and has been traditionally using waterways for business. He however added that as compared globally, we lack in the number of seafarers. However, in the last four years, we could register 42 per cent growth in the number of seafarers, which, he said, will further increase. This has created a number of new employment opportunities for the youth.

 On the occasion, Mr Mandaviya also inaugurated two e-Modules—one for recruitment and placement service agencies, and the other for facilitating maritime training institutes.
