SETTING UP OF SECOND INTERNATIONAL SHIP REGISTER IN INDIA

In this first part of a two-part article, the author notes that, as of 1988, Indian shipping tonnage constituted 1.6% of world shipping. To increase this market share, he advocates the establishment by India of a second international ship register. This would help the country compete in a environment that finds about 45% of world shipping registered under flags of convenience or second international registers set up by countries like Norway. The background and origins of flags of convenience are discussed and the opposition to them is summarized. They are compared with international registers set up by maritime countries.
