What is the advantage of INDOs NO. ?
The advantage to sea farer will be that he would not need to carry original document while training ashore. for eg. presently, a second mate has to undergo seven modular couress and one competency course for which he has to carry all his original documents. Once he has the INDOs certificate, he would not have to produce original document for admission to course anywhere in India. Further, in case of loss of original documents, INDOs will help in getting re-issue of duplicate certificates. Not withstanding INDOs, seafarers will still need to carry original document while serving onboard ship.
