Jammu Tawi, May 2
World’s largest and Hong Kong based shipping conglomerate, Anglo-Eastern Group has planned a maritime awareness and recruitment drive in Jammu. The drive is scheduled in Gandhi Nagar at Ask Learning Centre on May 5th and 6th, 2017.
Primarily aimed at counseling young students keen on a lucrative career in the merchant navy, the scheduled drive will also facilitate admissions to Anglo Eastern Maritime Academy (AEMA) to the eligible students. AEMA is India’s premier maritime training institute operated by Anglo-Eastern Group. AEMA offers assured placements to all its students aboard over 700 cargo ships operated by Anglo-Eastern Group.
Capt Anil Rai, senior executive, Anglo-Eastern Group, said, “Seafarers aboard cargo ships earn lucrative tax free salaries in US Dollars. Indian seafarers become financially independent at a young age because of high earnings, tax free status and substantial savings.”
“After completing their onboard training and clearing the requisite examinations conducted by Government of India, entry-level certified officers in merchant navy are paid around US Dollars 3000 per month as tax free remuneration. As they attain seniority over a period of time, their tax-free salary packages could rise up to US Dollars 14,000 per month,” added Capt Rai.
There are around 50,000 specialized merchant navy ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo.
The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations and manned by over a million of seafarers of virtually every nationality. From India alone, there are over 1.3 lakh seafarers (around 7% of the global population of seafarers) who serve on specialized cargo ships of both Indian and international principals.
Established in the year 1974, the Anglo-Eastern Group is experienced in ship management, crew management, education and training of seafarers, etc.
The services of Anglo-Eastern Group are offered around the globe and supported by twenty-one offices in thirteen countries backed by its head office in
