  • The Bill provides for a central database for recording the details of the vessel, vessel registration, and crew on an electronic portal.
  • All non-mechanically propelled vessels will also have to be enrolled at the district, taluk or panchayat or village level.
  • It enlarges the definition of ‘inland waters’, by including tidal water limits and national waterways declared by the Central Government.
