Govt. of India (29 October 2020)
I am directed to refer to your e-mail dated 14.10.2020 informing this Directorate about
the abandonment of three vessels viz. MV Transnav Hazel (lMO No. 9646962), MV Omidan 3
(lMO No. 9646962) and MV Ahoora (lMO No. 8325133).
In this connection it is stated that as per the E-Governance system maintained in this
office none of the seafarers have been engaged on board above vessels through the Recruitment
and Placement Service Licensed agents. Hence the details of the seafarers and the agents who
have employed the seafarers in question are not available in the e-govemance system.
ln view of the above and in the absence of details of the RPS agents and seafarers, this
office is unable to take further action regarding non payment of wages due to them, through
registered RPS agents regulated by this office.
The issue therefore may need be taken up with the local authorities where the said ships are
located presently for obtaining details of the seafarers, agents and shipowners. IMO is requested
for obtaining required details from the source of the complaints received by it and same may be
communicated to this office.
Non-governmental Organization (1 December 2020)
Seafarer has informed that pending wages have been settled. This case is resolved.
