220. No ship to carry passengers without a certificate of survey.-

(1) No ship shall carry more than twelve passengers between ports or places in India or to or from any port or place in India from or to any port or place outside India, unless she has a certificate of survey under this Part in force and applicable to the voyage on which she is about to proceed or the service on which she is about to be employed:

Provided that nothing in this section shall apply to any ship which has been granted a certificate under section 235, unless it appears from the certificate that it is inapplicable to the voyage on which the ship is about to proceed or the service on which she is about to be employed, or unless there is reason to believe that the ship has, since the grant of the certificate, sustained injury or damage or been found unseaworthy or otherwise inefficient.

(2) No Customs Collector shall grant a port clearance, nor shall any pilot be assigned, to any ship for which a certificate of survey is required by this Part until after the production by the owner, agent or master thereof of a certificate under this Part in force and applicable to the voyage on which she is about to proceed or the service on which she is about to be employed.

(3) If any ship for which a certificate of survey is required by this Part, leaves or attempts to leave any port of survey without a certificate, any Customs Collector or any pilot on board the ship may detain her until she obtains a certificate.
