    Hey friend,

    Indian Army:

    You cannot join in Indian Army as at least you must have completed +2 from a recognized board so that you can apply for the NDA exam.For other exams you need to have completed a degree,so you cannot apply for those exams.


    Merchant Navy:

    The Merchant Navy is a non-combatant commercial fleet which includes transporting cargos,tankers and etc and at times passengers too.Through merchant navy you could join in ship as a Deck, the Engine and the Saloon Department.

    You cannot apply for the merchant navy also as you must have completed a degree such as B.E/M.E in marine Engineering or B.sc Nautical Science.

    As you have done your diploma in Civil engineering you cannot join in Merchant Navy.
