Hello Manish,
The two major department in the merchant navy are the engineering department and the navigation department. Being a student from commerce background, you won't be eligible to join in any of these dapertments but Similar to any other industry, a ship also requires someone to handle money on board and for this job, in merchant navy, they appoint a Pursuer.A Purser is responsible for general administration and all money-related needs on board.
To be eligible for this department, you must be a graduate in commerce or related field with a fair knowledge of accountancy and computer.

This has quite bright carrier as they give handsome salary.
For that you do not require any specific stream, buty when when you belong to maths it resulkts into benefit for you.
But don't worry that not a big problem.

There are many private institutes that too provide merchant navy traininga nd you can either appear for UPSC exam.

dear friend

According to my knowledge, you cannot join merchant navy because there is no way out to join this course without having PCM subjects in your 12th.

But according to your qualification, you are not eligible to join merchant navy. Because your background is commerce.

And to join merchant navy, PCM subject is compulsory. So, dont worry, just do any other courses, which was related to your field.

Can a Commerce Student Join MErchant Navy



Yes.....!

But in Rating Department.

In Catering Rating: One will be responsible to look after the whole catering and foods etc.
In Purser Job:One is an officer who looks after all the administrative work related to pay and perks of personnel onboard. However, this category of personnel has also been almost phased out and their duties passed over to other deck officers.


Any background will do. However, background in hotel management/Hospitality/Cabin Crew etc. with experience in the hospitality business will be a great help.


In this field you need to upgrade your skills every nine months or so, through proficiency development or skill development courses in the maritime academies and pass examinations conducted by the Directorate General of Shipping (DGS). This will be your key to new contracts.

Age Limit: 25 years for MBA/CA or master degree holders, while 22-23 for Bachelor holder .

Hi,
In my knowledge you won't be able to join merchant navy as a deck cadet. You can try joining it as an offshore cadet in the management department. But that is not anybody want to. So the summary is that you can't join it.
Although there are other better options for you. Sorry for the negative reply!!

Is is not possible to join Merchant Navy after commerce in 12th because to join Merchant Navy you have to be a student of science with at least 60% marks .

But if you really want to join defense then there are various ways for you like -
NDA
CDS
NCC
SSC

For CDS ,SSC you have to complete at least graduation but after 12th you can write NDA exam .CDS and NDA exams are conducted UPSC.

So you can get full details of those exams from -
www.upsc.gov.in

Thank you
