DG Shipping has advised seafarers recruitment and placement agents and shipping companies to refrain from taking money for employment.

The government on Wednesday said it has approved a model pact with foreign countries for recognition of seafarers’ competency certificates.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi here.

This will pave the way for mutual recognition of maritime education and training of seafarers by the countries involved.

“The Cabinet has approved a model MoU with foreign countries for unilateral/bilateral recognition of Certificates of Competency of seafarers,” a government official said.
