I applied DCE on 31st dec 2015.
Here I am sharing the procedure.
There are no Dce's done in delhi .so all the north people have to come to either mumbai or goa or kolkata .
So....Talkin about mumbai procedure.
Dce can be applied in mumbai only on tuesday and thursday and it can be done only between 9000 hrs to 1300 hrs.
So..first of all i hv sent the checklist of documents whose copies are to be submitted.
Apart from those documents . You ll have to carry the following docs extra -
1) "Updated seafarer profile ".
Please use either explorer till version 9 or mozilla firefox . this can be done by logging into dg shipping site < update sea farers profile .Personal details in dt wer already filled from SIMS so dnt worry abt dt. Next fill educational qualification by inputing the 10 + 2 information. Next fill the professional training part. But pls note "first fill the modular courses and then fill the pre- sea traing part ". Otherwise the site will show ' dates clashed' . In modular fill - efa , fpff,pssr,pst , security training ,otfc,ctfc,gtfc. After that fill 'documents' part in which cdc info will be already der. U ll have to fill passport and Indos details. Thats it. After that there will an option for print. Print it.
2) Cdc checker - just google 'cdc checker ' enter your cdc no. And date of birth . A page will be generated. Print that.
3) fpff augmentation - 'Carry out fire fighting operations in basic training for oil, chemical and liquified gas tanker cargo operations '.
Now go to Seamans club ( 2 min distance from mumbai Cst ) .address - Fetch frm google. After reaching . Go inside the hall for Dce .
Ask any1 der to show the 'mangalam store ' go there n ask for Dce form n check list . (If applying both oil n chem dces then ask for two two sets).With a big A4 green envelope , paper pin and a small envelope for passport size photos.
N fotos should be strictly Passport ('40mm ? 30 mm ). ""Should not be the SIMS foto with the cdt uniform "" . ""Should not be a foto in t -shirt. "". "Should be a foto in formal shirt ".
Now just walkin to the seamans club again . There will be a big table der grab a place der. Remove the form and checklist . Fill it. Fill carefully. If mistake done . Den again walk to mangalam fr a new form.
Arrange all those documents according to the sequence given in the check list . Place the augmentation cert. Last. Place the demand drafts and the fotos envelope in the front. Pin it with the paper pin. Put that bunch in the green envelope. Write the name,address,contact on the front of that envelope. N go and sit in the line.
* Reach seamans club early morning at 9000 hrs. If uall are staying there the previos night. That time itself go to the mangalam store and buy the things required that will save a lot of time.
* Make the demand drafts from the bank near your home only. If ua thinking abt making it from mumbai. It ll kill a lot of time.
* Self attest each and every page.
*While getting cdc foto copy . Ensure that all printed pages copies hv come
Including page '28' of cdc.
* write ur name and ph. No. Behind the dd's.
* The officer sitting over there is a little angry man. He rejected all our forms 2 to 3 times Due to small small problems in the docs. But dont get panicked even if he yells n shouts. Dont mind. Just ask him patiently what to do. And do that.
* small small errors can be overlooked by him. But if theres a mistake in demand draft. Then. All the best to go back home. So check the draft well while recieving it frm d bank.
* If u dont carry your updated seafarers profile from home. The you ll have to do it from dt mangalam store. Which will cost you 250 rs.
* There are no cheap hotels nearby. Anyway this hotel will cost u less that is 250 rs per day.
