Work­ing at ease of do­ing busi­ness, the Ship­ping Min­istry will soon is­sue a no­ti­fi­ca­tion re­vok­ing 13 rules of the Merchant Ship­ping Act of 1958. Un­der this no­ti­fi­ca­tion, old rules re­lated to cer­tain tar­iffs, main­te­nance of equip­ment and pil­grim ships will be elim­i­nated. Around 67 old rules were iden­ti­fied and con­sen­sus was reached on dis­card­ing 13. Some of the rules were made in the 1960s.

Deepak Shetty, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral ( DG), Ship­ping, said that a draft no­ti­fi­ca­tion has been pre­pared for re­vok­ing the rules by the Min­istry of Law. Th­ese have been vet­ted by the DG Ship­ping’s of­fice.

The DG Ship­ping’s of­fice also con­ducted a study and found 97 rea­sons for which ship­ping com­pa­nies come to the ship­ping of­fice for griev­ance re­dres­sal.
