Indian passenger-cargo ship 'State of Haryana'

Bombay-registered passenger/cargo ship "State of Haryana" (8,908 tons gross, built by Barclay, Curle & Co Ltd., Whiteinch, Glasgow), owned by the Shipping Corporation of India, at Ballard Pier, Bombay, in January 1968. She was completed in November 1950 as "Santhia" for the British India S.N. Co. of London (see picture #22595) & bought by S.C.I. in December 1966. She then ran on the Bombay/East Africa service until 1974 when she was transferred to the Andaman Islands service under the name "Nancowry" (not to be confused with the later ship of the same name, the ex-B.I. "Karanja"; see picture #21550) until reverting to her old name & being laid up in 1976. She was scrapped in Bombay in 1977.

Thanks for the great picture, does anyone have a passenger list of the State of Haryana leaving Mombasa for Bombay/Goa in May 1968 arriving in June 1968. My cousin Tony Coutinho was on it with his mum and dad and 2 sisters and we are trying to get record of it. Do you know how to get the records from the Port Authority? Regards, Pet

Wow! what memories...playing deck quoits, table tennis and having a ball of a time and making lots of friends on board...and the food!!

Journeyed from Mombasa to Goa/Bombay in November/December 1969 and again in 1973, returning to Mombasa in January of the following year in each case.

Wonder if anyone else remembers...
