Thousands of ships set to be hit by India’s age restrictions

Greek data firm MarineTraffic has provided some details of the ramifications of the upcoming Indian ban on older ships.

New Delhi is readying age restrictions for ships calling at the world’s second most populous nation.

Under the new rules no bulk carrier, tanker or general cargo ship aged 25 or older will be allowed to call at Indian ports. For gas carriers, offshore vessels and boxships the age limit will be set at 30 years. Locally flagged ships will be deregistered when they hit these new age limits.
