Maritime Training Trust, owned by the Indian government and the local shipping industry, will provide scholarships up to Rs. 1.00.000, to women seafarers in order to encourage and promote their career in the shipping industry. The initiative was approved by the Directorate General of Shipping.
The Government of India focuses on the importance of women seafarers, highlighting that for the time being there are few Indian women on ships, and calling for additional women participation in the industry by launching guidelines.
Ms.Sanjam Sahi Gupta, Director for Sitara Shipping Ltd, has launched a new initiative in light of the IMO’s 2019 World Maritime Day theme. The surveys aim to understand at what level women are employed in shipping, what roles have been assigned to them and what women-friendly policies have been put in place.
