ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT INDOS

What is INDOs ?
It is a computerized national database for quick reference by statutory authorities such as Flag State, Port State, Immigration & Employers etc. to prevent fraudulent issue of certificates. The database will include address, photographs, signature & telephone etc. The INDOs No. consist of eight alphanumeric character. Henceforth, no seafarer with out INDOs No. will admitted to any course other than three month pre-sea training course

Who must have INDOs NO. ?
All Indian and Foreign Nationals holding COC granted by Government of India or Indian CDC or who have done modular courses approved by DG Shipping. Courses not approved by Government of India except GMDSS will not be included in the INDOs data.

Which authority deals with INDOs ?
The officer in-charge, INDOs, LBS College, Hay Bunder, Mumbai - 400 033.
Tele : 91-22-3719977, Fax : 91-22-3739784, Email : mariner@bom2.vsnl.net.in

What is the fees for getting the INDOs NO. ?
For fresh entrance the profession :-
Rs. 100/- (US $ 5 for foreign nationals) for the first entry made through approved pre-sea training institutions that conduct induction course of three months duration or more.

Rs. 100/- for every subsequent input updating the course undergone by the seafarer. Such input and payment would be provided to INDOs by the institution conducting each course.

For persons already in the profession :-
Rs. 500/- (US $ 25 for foreign nationals) when they fill up the form for first time.

Rs. 100/- for every subsequent input updating the course undergone by the seafarer. Such input and payment would be provided to INDOs by the institutions conducting each course.

For enquiries from employers.
Rs. 500/- per printout of details of a seafarer. Such printouts would be on special paper with Govt. emblem printed on the background.

What is the advantage of INDOs NO. ?
The advantage to sea farer will be that he would not need to carry original document while training ashore. for eg. presently, a second mate has to undergo seven modular couress and one competency course for which he has to carry all his original documents. Once he has the INDOs certificate, he would not have to produce original document for admission to course anywhere in India. Further, in case of loss of original documents, INDOs will help in getting re-issue of duplicate certificates. Not withstanding INDOs, seafarers will still need to carry original document while serving onboard ship.

How do I get INDOs NO. ?
For those entering the profession
INDOs numbers would be allotted by LBS College when a person joins a pre-sea training institute that conducts approved pre-sea training courses of three months duration or more.

Details of any modular course certificates obtained by the seafarer would be accepted only directly from approved training institutions by way of monthly statements.

Details of documents, issued by Government authorities, such as Certificates of Competency, Letter of Authority for issue of a Certificate of Competency (Commonly referred to as 'Blue Chit') endorsement for serving on special ship types. CDCs, etc., issued in due course would be directly communicated to the INDOs centre for updating the data. Such details would not be accepted from the seafarer.

For those already in the profession
Photocopies of certificates produced by those already in the profession would be accepted and entered into INDOs.

Such certificates would be verified subsequently from records furnished to INDOs by the training institutions and authorities such as Chief Examiners (Certificates of Competency), Mercantile Marine Departments (Letter of Authority for issue of COS and endorsements for special ship types), Shipping Masters (CDCs), etc.
