For joining as an cadet,in there officer branches,you can join it after persue B.sc.(nautical science) as an officer which will leads you upto the captain.

However,you can also join it after a 12 month pre-sea training,which is offered by various instiute and port trusts across the India.The minimum eligibility criteria for it is you must be have passed 12 with atleast 60% aggregate or candidates who are appearing are also provided provissional admission

after 10+2 u have to contact any merchant navy office which provides training
then u have to pass a written exam after which u will be interviewed.....then there will a medical checkup....
then there will be a course for 6 months off- board training and then a 6 months on- board training.......
list of best institutes are.........
tolani,torm,mearsk,anglo eastern,babar......these are situated in mumbai...namac is a govt. running institute for merchant navy....
and if you become a sponsored candidate then after completing a course you dont have to apply any where for a ship recruitment ,the company that has sponsored you will place you in his ships directly.
best of luck
