    Re: Eligibility criteria & the procedure to join Merchant Navy

    You can either search for technical or non-technical jobs in Merchant Navy. As you are an intermediate, you can be a part of the Merchant Navy as a Deck Cadet. However, if you expect a good career in Navy, you have to study either Marine Engineering or Nautical Science courses. There are mainly 4 Government Pre and Post – Sea training institutes of international standards in India. They are the Marine Engineering & Research Institute in Kolkata and Mumbai, Lal Bahadur Shastri College of advanced Maritime Studies and Research and TS Chanakya institute. You can either study the Sea training programs in these institutes or in any other private institutes of your choice. Please visit the official website of these institutes for clarifying your doubts.

    Merchant navy is one of the most prestigious careers available in India. It offers the candidates an opportunity to travel the world and have an adventurous filled work environment. There are many levels of entry for the merchant navy. As you are a +2 candidate, you can apply for the Deck Cadet. The basic eligibility required to join as a deck cadet is to have a +2 with more than 60% of marks in PCM. The candidate must also have studied English as a separate subject in +2. The age of the candidate must also be less than 20 years of age. The candidate must have perfect eyesight without any visual aid and must not be affected with color blindness. As you have only secured 58.8% +2 you may not be eligible for the Merchant navy.
