Often, foreign ships travel through India and dock their vessels at various ports / harbors in the country. One of the major requirements during such temporary stays, is that of FCY Cash that has to be made available to the Captain of the Ship for covering Crew wages or for other expenses on board the ship.
These requirements are usually met through a facility called “Cash to Master”. To collect this cash, the Captain of the Ship has to approach the branch with his passport and a duly filled up application form.
