Inland Vessels Bill, 2021 to benefit Inland Waterways & Navigation within the country

Parliament recently passed The Inland Vessels Bill, 2021, which aims to bring uniformity in the application of the law relating to inland waterways and navigation within the country.

The bill entails the government’s aim to develop inland ports and harness India’s 7,500km coastline and potentially navigable waterways.

The Inland Vessels Bill, 2021 seeks to replace separate rules framed by states with a uniform regulatory framework for inland vessel navigation.

This will support the countrywide operation of registered boats, ships, container vessels, sailing vessels and ferries. However, to operate in the inland waterways, vessels will need a survey certificate, which will be issued by states.
