MSL Branch Circular 1 of 2010

No: MSl-1(2)/95-III                                                                                                                             Dated:29.06.2010

Sub: Issuance of Safe Manning Scale on the Nautical side.


             Reference is invited to this office circular of even number dated 4/09/2008 circulating the Minimum Safe Manning Scale on the deck side for various categories of ships.

             In order to give an impetus to coastal shipping and to be able to cope up with the increasing manpower demand on coastal fleet, it has been decided to further rationalize the Safe Manning Scale on deck side, for manning of tugs less than 300 GT.

              Accordingly, the minimum Safe Manning Scale in the deck manning is revised as enclosed.

              These guidelines supersede all earlier guidelines as issued by the Directorate General of Shipping for the deck manning.

               This issues with the approval of the Director General of Shipping and ex- Officio Additional Secretary to the Govt. of India.
