JAMMU, July 27: To encourage the young generation of Jammu and Kashmir to join Merchant Navy as an Officer,  Sunrise (Marine Career Counselling Centre) organized a felicitation programme for Deck Cadets,  who are sponsored in leading Shipping Companies in the world for August 2015 batch from J&K.
S  Jagbir Singh, Retd Lt Commander Indian Navy and advisor of Sunrise, who was  chief guest of the programme, suggested the  young generation of J&K to adopt the Merchant Navy field.  “You will be financially secured in young age and help your parents and others also,” he said and added that now girls can also join Merchant Navy.
Rajesh Sharma, CEO of Sunrise, appealed the State Government to set up a Marine College in J&K so that the local student can get the education in their own State.
Manpreet Kour, SEO of Sunrise, said that they were organizing such programme since many years to facilitate the students who are sponsored in the leading Shipping Companies of the world.  In this batch, we have facilitated Rakshit Chib, Shubhang Jamwal, Aryan Dubey and Gourav Sharma who were sponsored in leading shipping companies like Great Eastern, Fleet Management and Bernhard Schulte Management, she added.
She appealed the young generation of J&K to join Merchant Navy inspite of joining other streams after class 12th. “After 1 year training,  you start earning approx. Rs  20,000 to Rs 40000 per month and after 18 month sea experience and passing out 2nd mate examination you start earning Rs 1.5 to 2 lakh per month approx  depending upon  company to company and after sea experience.  Chief Officer’s salary is Rs 2 to 4 lakh and after some experience, you can become Captain of the ship and start earning Rs 7 to 10 lakh per month in a very young age, she added.
Manpreet Kour informed that the Sunrise Educational Trust was also sponsoring the students.
