The minimum education qualification required to join merchant navy is 12th standard with PCM as subjects. You do satisfy this criteria but there are other criteria too to be satisfied. This includes a minimum of 60% in these subjects. Also the upper age limit to apply is 20 years. Candidates applying need to have perfect eye vision. So since you have crossed the required age limit and the physical fitness standards are not met you cannot make a career in this field.

Merchant Navy is a dream job for thousands of people. Traveling around the world in a ship and a solid salary lures thousands of people in India to join Merchant Navy.

Merchant Navy deals with import and export. Its a commerical fleet which deals in cargo transportation. Today a lot of import and export is done through sea. Whether you are exporting heavy machinery, oil and much more, sea is the only mode of transportation. This is where Merchant Navy is required. As a officer in Merchant Navy you are subject of lots of perks which include bringing your wife to the travel journeys.


Eligibility Criteria:

If you want a top job in Merchant Navy which pays well and comes with lots of perks then you will have to complete Bachelors course in Nautical science or Marine engineering. Most of the top jobs are related to engineering and navigational fields such as marine engineers, radio officer, navigating officer etc.

To do Bachelors course in Nautical science or Marine engineering you need to complete Class 12th from a recognised board with PCM as the subjects.

Both male and female candidates are welcomed as long as they are unmarried.

The age limit is 20 years as for the September 1 of entry year. This rule is relaxed for SC/ST candidates by 5 years.

You will also require to meet physical requirements and pass the medical test. The requirements include 6/6 vision and no color blindness.

Direct Entry

Candidates who have completed 12th with PCM can get direct entry as Deck Cadets.

On the other hand B.Tech in Mechanical/ Electrical/ Technology candidates can also directly apply for jobs like Engine Cadet/ Fifth Engineer/ Junior Engineer.

In both cases candidates are required to go through few months of training before they will be given job.

However even in the direct entry mode, physical requirements stands which means candidates with color blindness are disqualified.


I am afraid since you have color blindness there is no way for you to get into Merchant Navy. This field is very strict about meeting physical criteria and no waiver is given to anyone. Every single candidate has to go through medical test to ensure he/she meets all the physical criteria. This rules out your any chance of making into Merchant Navy. I also think that you have surpassed the age limit too for Merchant Navy job.

hi,


You can join merchant navy through two fields:
Nautical science and Marine engineering field
Navigational fields
Now since both the fields are different the eligibility for both of them is also different:
now the field in which you should be interested is Nautical science and Marine engineering field as you can do this after 12 th.


eligibility criteria for Nautical science and Marine engineering:
Educational Qualification : You should have passed your 10+2 or an equivalent examination with physics, chemistry and mathematics.
you must be Indian citizen.
Age limit for candidates is 16 years to 19.5 years while training.


If you go for marine engineering exams then the procedure would be as follows:
written exam
medical tests

If you clear the exam then you will get admitted in the marine engineering course where you will get the training too.

Top maritime institutes in india are:
Tolani Maritime Institute (TMI), pune
International Maritime Institute(IMI), Delhi
Maharashtra Academy of Naval Education and Training(MANET), Pune
Vels Academy of Maritime Studies, Chennai
Institute of Technology and Marine Engineering (ITME), Kolkata

thank you

Thumbs up Re: Can I join merchant Navy? I am 29 years old

now a days merchant navy is gaining importance in india. it deals with the import and export of goods(heavy machinery,oil etc) through sea. it includes traveling along with good salary.
the navigation and engineering field of merchant navy is a good career option.
the eligibility criteria for joining merchant navy are
1)age limitation-not more than 20 years on the 1st day of september on the joining year. age relaxed by 5 years for the sc/st candidates.
2)for entering into the navigation and engineering field you must have passed in physics,chemistry and mathematics in 10+2 examination from a recognized board, have a bachelor degree in nautical science or marine engineering. but entrance examinations are held for acquiring a bachelor degree in nautical science or marine engineering.
3)both male and female candidates are eligible(unmarried)
4)good eye vision and no color or night blindness.
you can also have direct entry
a bachelor degree of technology in electrical/mechanical are also eligible to apply for post like fifth engineer/junior engineer.
one can apply for deck cadre who have passed the 10+2 examination with PCM as elective subjects.
but the physical criteria remains the same. one will be given training under senior officers before they are sent on sea.

according to the rules of merchant navy you will not be eligible to join it. the physical fitness is determined by medical test conducted and no concession is given. and may be you have already covered the age limitation..
try in other fields. best of luck!
