    CDC Renewal Procedure


    13

    Recently I renewed my CDC (CDC Renewal Sticker). One friend sent a mail from his company detailing CDC renewal procedure with covering letter and other formalities. I did not follow their procedure and stuck with CDC renewal procedure laid down in the DG Shipping Circular. You can download my CDC Renewal form filled for reference.

    e-samudra, DG Shipping Seafarer profile registration


    4

    Register & complete your e-Samudra seafarer profile. Completing your DG Shipping Seafarer profile, is mandatory as per DG Guidelines.
     
    I made my DG Shipping profile during Master exams @ e-Samudra dg shipping seafarer registration. While updating, I was confused about Passport number as my Passport was renewed. E-samudra do not allow you to delete any previous records so I simply added my new Passport details. Rest I updated few old data and my seafarer profile was complete. You will be asked to recheck again prior taking final printout. You need to submit your profile printout too with the documents required for CDC renewal. e-samudra, DG Shipping Seafarer profile registration

      @Kashif7707 please check "Click to view and print your profile" on top of the e-samudra Seafarer Profile page after you have logged in. Hopefully that should show your name correctly.
      In my case while the profile page does not show my last name the printout page shows it correctly !

      If problem still persists then you may try

      1. Contact DG Shipping, hopefully they should guide you well.
      2. The Seafarer Profile page says "Contact concerned Shipping Master Office" for updating of permanent address ! You can try contacting him even for correction of your name perhaps.

      Please do share your experience on how you corrected the same.

      Friend I just wrote common eSamudra problems and their possible solution. I hope those solutions help you too.

      While you cannot do much for 500 error as its their server issue but for other problems I think you check the printout page as same happened with me during my DG shipping online seafarer registration too, but the printouts were OK. Best of Luck.

      Hi Sir, my CDC expired on 06/8/2012,can I renew CDC or do i need to apply for a new one ?

      You cannot apply for "new" CDC as new CDC is only issued by DG Shipping to someone who never had any prior CDC (Please check Declaration of CDC Renewal Form).

      You need to apply for CDC Renewal and if you have enough pages then apply for CDC renewal sticker. Best of luck.

    CDC Renewal Form


    6

    Download the CDC Renewal form @ M.S. Notice 24 of 2012 Dated 04.12.2012 . To me CDC renewal form is self explanatory. It covers not only CDC Renewal but also duplicate and lost CDC replacement procedure. Listing down important points

    1. No need of attestation by Gazetted Officer, Self attestation accepted on copies of your documents.
    2. Do not forget to write your Full name and date of self attestation.
    3. Use only CAPITAL LETTERS while filling your CDC Renewal form.
    4. Avoid over-writing !
    5. Fill & send only page number 4 to 8 (first 3 instruction pages are for self reference)
    6. Write on top left hand of the envelope (containing documents/CDC renewl form) in BLOCK LETTERS Replacement/Duplicate/Revalidation of CDC as required.
    7. No fees levied for revalidation of CDC (CDC Sticker).
    8. Write your name on the reverse of your photograph.
    9. Send the application by Registered / Speed post / Courier service to the Shipping Master (from where CDC was obtained i.e. Mumbai/Kolkata/Chennai, address given in the CDC Renewal form)
    10. Documents required for CDC Renewal is detailed in Section II (A) of the CDC Renewal Form
    Personal experience while applying for CDC renewal were :
    I copied all the filled and printed pages of CDC.
    All documents list send by me attached below.
    Kept the documents list simple, did not add covering letter or next of kin details (advised by few shipping companies)
    You can download my CDC Renewal form filled for reference.
    I chose Speed post for sending my duly filled CDC Renewal Form. CDC Renewal Form

      FORM - B >> II. >> A >> (i)
      3  stamp size photographs in white shirt (size 3 cm x 2.5 cm) -  one should be affixed on the application form.
      This confused me too. I did the following

      1. Affixed 1 passport size photo (3.5 cm X 3.5 cm)
      2. Put 3 stamp size photo (3 cm X 2.5 cm) in envelope
      3. Wrote name on reverse of 3 stamp size photograph

      Would recommend you to download my filled CDC renewal form for better understanding. Best of luck

      also kindly advice, can I apply for renewal OF cdc even-though the period to expire the validity is almost 9 months... or in other words, I want to know should we apply for renewal after the CDC validity is expires or  before to that... if  before then what is the  early period ( 1 year/ six months )

      I lost all circular reference since DG Shipping website changed hence cannot link it. Logically GP rating contracts are for 9 months so CDC renewal should be allowed 10 months before. I also found mariners who applied almost an year before the CDC expiry and got the sticker.

      No harm in self attesting, that is what I did ! Trust post card stamp details given in form, though it does not matter because anyways if it is of lesser value, you only will be paying for it (it is returned back to you) !

    CDC Renewal status


    3

    How can one track CDC renewal status once CDC Renewal Form is send ?
    You need to send a self addressed post card along with your documents. CDC renewal status will be send back to you on this post card. You will be assigned a file number on this post card for future reference related to your CDC Sticker application.

    How long does it take :
    18 May 2013 - Dispatched filled CDC Renewal Form, copies of documents.
    08 Jun 2013 - Received the file number detailed in self addressed Post Card.
    03 Jul 2013 - Received CDC Renewal sticker

    What if you do not receive post card or CDC renewal sticker even after 2 months ?
    I think the only way to get details then would be first to verify from your post/courier office, date shipment was delivered. Contact DG Shipping by e-mail / registered post OR file an RTI application for CDC Renewal status. CDC Renewal status

      One of my friend got his CDC renewal form rejected as he got his documents notary attested (YOU NEED TO SELF ATTEST, SIGN AND DATE AS DETAILED BEFORE ).
      He got his postcard returned blank and also received a rejection letter from DG Shipping detailing the reason of rejection within 1 month of applying for CDC renewal. Attaching his rejection letter for reference CDC Renewal status

    If I had missed something, please do share your experience/updates about CDC renewal sticker.

      Thanks @Karthik
      @Rayan trust you are asking for CDC Renewal sticker as this post is for renewal sticker which I mentioned at the very beginning.
      1000 Rs DD is required when actual replacement of CDC is done (renewal/lost CDC).

      Sorry I didn't got to know about this forum as one of my friend sent me over mail for applying CDC renewal sticker as its instruction, said gazzeted officer attestation required for applying. So all my docs copies are attested by gazzet officer and was sent to Chennai, Shipping master 10 days back. After going through this forum just now I am afraid whether my CDC renewal form will be rejected. I hadn't got any reply, kindly guide me what to do. Or shall I apply for renewal of CDC again propely without gazzet sign B4 awating for reply. Iam in Urgent Situation as my sailing date planned at end of September month.

      You still have not gone through the Post carefully! You should get a mail from DG Shipping detailing the reason for your rejection of CDC Renewal form as detailed in the replies of CDC Renewal status. Hope it helps you.
      It is advisable to wait till you get such letter as you still are not sure whether your form is rejected !
