21 Mar 2020 / India

The Indian Government Directorate of Shipping has issued instructions for all major and minor ports for dealing with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

It is important that the flow of goods by sea should not be needlessly disrupted without compromising the safety of life and protection of the environment.

In view of the same, it has been decided that for the continued operation of vessels and ports, the specific procedures must be followed by all stakeholders for all vessels until further orders.
