CDC RENEWAL PROCEDURE

CDC Renewal Procedure


26

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


8

Register & complete your e-Samudra seafarer profile. Completing your DG Shipping Seafarer profile, is mandatory as per DG Guidelines. Same is also required for Dangerous Cargo endorsement.
 
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 has many problems on of which is that it does 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.

CDC Renewal Form


8

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 renewal form) in BLOCK LETTERS Replacement/Duplicate/Revalidation of CDC as required.
  7. No fees levied for re-validation 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 or try DG Shipping Contact list.)
    [UPDATE For CDC renewal apply to any Shipping Master now]
  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.

    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) !

    Hi Rishi
    Thanks for all the information.
    DG website and guidelines doesnt mention about STCW course xerox copies and it had mentioned about CDC copy with gazetted officer attestation and DG profile. so is it a trend that shipping master rejects application without copy of modular certificates?

    Hi Friend, most of the things I mentioned are already in the CDC Renewal Form. I am not sure what you are talking about or can you please leave the link of the concerned Guidelines which you are mentioning ! Shipping masters do not reject anything without a cause, and when they do, they do send cause of rejection letter which I have mentioned in CDC Renewal Status.

CDC Renewal status

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. You can check my RTI to DG Shipping.

While in my case CDC Checker never updated my renewed CDC Data, but it seems like lately CDC Checker are updated prior sending your CDC renewal sticker. Thanks to Navin Barthwal for his reply regarding this!  CDC Renewal status

    Before u get your CDC renewal sticker at home by speed post, your validity of CDC is updated on DG Shipping website.

    Check CDC checker in dgshipping.gov.in website for the updated validity. It will help u to know that u will get sticker soon after the validity update.

    I live in Andheri, they dispatched it on 24 Dec 2014  from CST and I received it on 29 Dec 2014. Also if you want to save few days to get your CDC soon, then Speed post it from CST GPO.

    I received it within 22-23 days including Sat-Sun

CDC Renewal sticker

I received my CDC Renewal sticker on 03 Jul 2013 almost 1.5 months after I applied for CDC renewal.

Indian CDC contain pages marked "SPACE FOR PASTE OF RENEWAL STICKER" almost at the end of CDC (Page number 29 onwards),please stick your CDC renewal sticker on this page.

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