Admiralty law or maritime law is a distinct body of law that regulates both domestic law governing maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private entities that operate vessels on the oceans. The legislations dealing in maritime law are Indian Merchant Shipping Act 1923, the Indian Registration of Ships Act, 1841, the Control of Shipping Act 1947, Indian Ports Act 1908, etc. The Government of India has recently circulated a draft bill for an Admiralty Act, 2005 seeking to repel all the obsolete legislation and to bring a comprehensive law to regulate the claims, jurisdiction, procedures, etc. This bill when passed by the Indian Parliament would bring a new legislation in India in relation to Maritime law.
