IRClass Opens Two New Offices
The Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass) has opened two new offices in India – one located in Paradip, a major maritime port town on the east coast of India, and another in Guwahati, the largest city in northeast Indian state of Assam.
Strengthening IRClass’ service network, these new offices join an existing network of 24 offices in India.
The opening of an office in Assam’s Guwahati follows the recent announcement on a joint initiative with the Assam Government in further developing the state’s inland water transport (IWT) system to improve commuter safety.
Paradip is among the leading ports in the country and several infrastructure projects under Sagarmala program are planned around the port. The Paradip office was opened against long standing demand from the industry. This office will serve the ship owners, ports and dry docking repair facilities within proximity, as well as neighboring ports including Dhamra and others in the region.
