    [FONT="Book Antiqua"][SIZE="3"]Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii,

    Sorry to say you that Girls are not eligible for Merchant Navy course because Girls generally donot prefer to stay away from home i.e 6 months.
    But There are lot of Entries for Girls in Indian Navy, i.e In Naval Architect , Law , Logistics, Aviation , ATC and Education Branches.

    Thank YOU

    Re: Are girls eligible for Merchant Navy course?

    Of course girls can join merchant Navy. This process can be done by appearing Indian Maritime University (IMU) examination.

    On succesful completion the result will be declared and further process will be started by IMU.

    Preference is give to the PCM students....

    but instead of merchany navy you should join indian navy. indian merchant ships do not allow girls cadets. in foreign ships they are humilated.

    so indian navy is better option and you will be proud to be in armed forces.

    MY DEAR FRIEND

    Yes, girls are eligible for joining the merchant navy but CAAMN is not structured to train girl cadets at this moment. This is under review and girl cadets will be trained at CAAMN in future.
    FOR GIRLS ELIGIBILITIES:
    students who have completed their 12th with PCM (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics) are eligible to join as Deck Cadets.

    But This job is not suitable for girls I think.
