    No friend, NCC certificate is not mandatory for everyone. But if you have NCC certificate you can apply for NCC direct entry scheme for which other candidates are not eligible.
    Since you are doing graduation you can apply for CDS Exam. CDS stands for Combined Defence Services Exam. CDS Exam is conducted by UPSC twice a year.
    All the necessary details like eligibility criteria, how to fill online form can be obtained from pdf attached below.
    For further details and Previous Years Question Papers you can refer www.upsc.gov.in
    You can fill the online application form from the official website www.upsconline.nic.in

    Friend, as per your qualification, you will be able for applying Naval academy through CDS Examination after completion of B.E degree. It is not true that possession of NCC Certificate is not mandatory to get recruited in navy.The only thing which most important is that you must fulfill all the required educational qualification, age limit and other requirements.Required educational qualification is any engineering degree or any bachelor degree with PCM combination in 12th standard. Age should be between 16.5 years to 19 years.Also should be Indians/Nepali/Bhutani. Must be unmarried and physically fit.For detailed information, please log on to www.joindefence.com www.upscdiscussions.com http://upsc.gov.inWISH YOUR BRIGHT FUTURE

    Well dear ncc certificate is not necessary to apply for navy but if you have it then you can apply through direct entry scheme.
    As you are doing your engineering so you can join indian navy through cds exam.cds exam is conducted twice in a year by upsc for the posts of all the three branches of indian army.
    ELIGIBILITY FOR CDS EXAM:you should have a graduation degree from a recognised university.your age should be between 18 to 25 years.
    Best of luck
