Merchant Navy: Agents, Money, Cheating and fraud



The merchant navy, which is a great and attractive profession, has become a idle haunting grounds for  fraudulent agents and making huge money from exploiting the poor and the one most needing the job. This entire impression in the entire society is emerging that the merchant navy means the Scam,money launderer and agents' fraud. All those who want to join the merchant navy from countries like sri lanka ,India, Philippines and Bangladesh get stuck in the affair of these agents, not only lose their time but also a lot of money. 

Today agents have made such an environment that it seems impossible to get their jobs without it specially in this time of global recession where there is a lot of people competing for the small no of job opportunities.  These Fraudulent agency and institution sometimes also include the officers of several companies. Recently, Captain of a Kolkata-based company was found involved in this work, when the complaint came to DG Shipping, then Captain had to go to jail, but soon he came out on bail. There is no news on him whether he stopped those practice or still doing under different names.

The mortgage of agents working in the Merchant Navy has reached an estimated 10 to 12 thousand crores annually. Most people do not know about merchant navy careers, and because of this agents get golden opportunity to catch the boys coming from small towns and remote villages to get them trapped in the affair of these agents.This agent charges Rs 4-5 lakh for job , And once trapped, this agent messes up badly with both their career and future.


After taking so much money, the conduit has to wait for months to get a job. The poor man gets into a lodge in some coastal cities, after which he is given a fake CDC, the new fake / inappropriate visa that is mostly the tourist visa and is sent for work on these papers. Most of them are sent illegally in countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Indonesia and Malaysia. Sometimes these boys are caught at the airport because they have gone to work on a tourist visa, which is illegal, And are put in prison.
In one such case, three boys of Gurgaon were put in jail in Iran. Later the Indian government redeemed them.

In a case Three boys were promised a job on offshore vessel in Singapore and the tickets were given to them was for Iran. In another case, a boy was caught in Iran only because his CDC was stamped in two countries and there was no stamp in passport.

The ships on which these agents send boys to work are not up-to the class, as boys are very poor they even work on these vessels just to complete their contact. The treatment is so bad that the boys do not take the name of the merchant navy when they return home and tell all the details about how bad the merchant navy is.

Because of all this, the name of the merchant navy is not only spoiled but the whole maritime society, Due to which good students and good families are making the distance from it.

It is necessary that people be told about the merits of Merchant Navy and the ways of joining a merchant navy on the right path and what are the benefits of it, along with a caution of these fraud agents. If the people are to know it then the situation can change. It is very important for the merchant navy to emerge from the clutches of the agent, for the future of the merchant navy.
