Binny Ship Management Pvt. Ltd. is shown by Lloyds as based Mumbai, India and was started in 1988 by V.B. Verma as a ship management company becoming a ship owner in 1995. I know the website stresses the British Virgin Island connection but this seems to be a case of subsidiaries being based in a more favourable tax resort, with their ships being registered in Panama. The flag home probably thus originates from India.
