    Whether to join Indian Navy as a Sailor or Merchant Navy as a Cadet?

    Hello Sir...I have done my 10 2 in Non Medical with overall 79% marks and 75% in PCM...
    Now i have passed the SSR exam of Indian Navy and there will be joining in the month of January next year...
    But sir Iam very confused whether i opt for the Indian Navy as a sailor or i will give the exam for the entry into IMU.
    And in case i give that exam...with what minimum rank should i go for the Merchant Navy...?

    you can enter into defence if you have completed your 10+2 with minimum of 60%,,but in 10+2 you must have the following subjects
    1)physic
    2)chemistry
    3)mathematics
    you can enter by appearing NDA exam which will be conducted twice every year'
    if you qualify in the NDA exam you call for an SSB interview
    the age limit for appearing NDA exam is 16 1/2 to 19 years

    you can also enter into defence after completion of your graduation with minimum of 60%
    by appearing for CDS exam which will be conducted twice every year

    the age limit for appearing CDS exam is 21 to 27 years

    Re: Whether to join Indian Navy as a Sailor or Merchant Navy as a Cadet?

    Try to join indian navy as a sailor because of following reasons
    1.total job security
    2.pension after retirement
    3.special facilities like housing,hospital,CSD etc.
    4.As u have such a good percentage in 10+2 u can even try for commission.

    In merchant navy you will be offered money but no quality of life.

    you must join Indian navy if you are interested to do something for country.

    it's risky but gives you satisfaction.

    but merchant navy gives you more money & less life risky than Indian navy

    Hello Friend, You can join, but you will not be able to make the most of it by joining as a lower category soldier. So I would like to suggest you to first complete your 12th, then apply for NDA and join air force as a pilot. Now that is called real air force soldier. You should not hurry that much and wait if you are going for graduation then you will find more better options as Aeronautical Engineer. So its in your hands now what you want to be. All the best............
