Crew Change in India Too EXPENSIVE- Voices Shipping Owners

As we are aware that crew change in India is happening for more than 2 weeks, shipping owners have shown great disappointment over the ‘Being too expensive’. As per the data released by them it costs around $90k to $180K for a crew change. In local currency that is almost more than 7million Indian Rupees. Shipping companies have said that, this is the most expensive crew change as compared to any part of the world. These costs includes, testing, transportations, lodging and boarding. What makes it so expensive we also not able to understand. A CEO of famous shipping company said, it is daylight robbery to charge such exorbitant amounts from the owners. This also puts second thoughts in the mind of owners to do crew change or not. Shipping ministry should intervene in such matters.
If these amounts are true to believe, then surely it is very expensive. And what are the reasons for such charges needs to evaluate so that the crew members do not suffer from such conditions. If someone is taking advantage of such situations then it is not a good a thing to do.
