Northern Marine Management India Ltd (NMMI) has been chosen by Indian seafarers as the 'Best Crewing team' at a prestigious industry awards ceremony in Mumbai.
Shipping companies gathered at the inaugural 'Indian Seafarer's Choice Awards 2015' ceremony on 6 February to celebrate the country's industry.
Indian seafarers voted for their favourite companies in a range of categories with NMMI being named the Best Crewing Team in the mid-size company category (less than 1000 seafarers).
All awards on the night were presented to the winner by actively sailing seafarers.
Mahesh Garimella, NMMI Director, General Manager, who attended the ceremony with colleagues, was delighted to accept the award on behalf of NMMI.
Mahesh said: "We are delighted to have been chosen by the Indian seafaring community as the Best Crewing Team for 2015.
"I would like to thank all the seafarers who voted for the company. They have made us proud. We will continue to work tirelessly for them, and our clients, to ensure our high standards continue to be met in 2016."
Indian seafarers voted using an online platform by Offing, the event organiser.
The entire process and final vote counts were verified by an honourary voting committee of industry dignatries.
