    Applicability is simple, Probablistic damage stability its specified in SOLAS, As per my knowledge yours is a non IMO/SOLAS vessel hence not necessary, now coming to the point of what is applicable, you should check with the registering administration for stability rules for inland passenger vessels....

    by the way If the vessel is operating in India, registered under any port under IWAI, there are no requirements specifically published by IWAI relevant to damage,
    this doens't mean you are out of the woods yet, as the class society will not allow to class a passenger vessel without damage stability met.

    I did a passenger veesel once with IRS, I faced the same problem, after a long battle they suggested me to comply with some criteria, I complied with MSN 1283 (M), Edition 2, and they accepted.

    In my idea make sure you comply with floodable lengths, SOLAS 1 compartment damage, that will do.
