generally height factor is not considered in any of the institutes during medical exam ...unless and until you are too short.......so dont worry go for it.....height is not a big deal....they will test your blood,urine,pulse,x-rays,etc.......

best of luck

For joining Merchant Navy you must be Medically fit in all respect.

Height is one of the main factor for getting there.

However,height requirement depends upon weight and age.For example if your age is 18 and weight is 50kg then the minimum permisseable height is 160cm.

However,you should have minimum 157cms of height if your weight is 50 kg and age is not more then 20 years.

Best of Luck

Yes off course dear !

Scoreing good in +2 is of utmost importance, specially when you have to join Merchant Navy.That because competetion is every where and preferance is alway given to superior one.And Merchant Navy is the place where you may also find IITians as your Competetors.

Best of Luck

You wont be selecte in Medical Fitness test.

White patchs is a type of Elergical disease. I dont think you wont be able to get through Medical Fitness test even after curing it.

That's an Exceptional Case !

And exceptional cases dont have any specific rules or regulations. However, if so then instead of having One Kidney if you are healthy and fit, then I think you will be allowed for duty.

But I am not sure.

Thumbs up Re: Whats all is there in merchant navy medical examination? short height any barrier?

dear friend, short height is not a barrier for joining in merchant navy.
But minimum 155cm height is required for merchant navy. & a candidate must be physically fit from color blindness, eye sight, any skin disease etc.

good luck.

No, Arthritis is an illness like- Pneumonia/ Astama which can be Controlled but can not be cured. At least in India I dont think there is any treatment which can cure ARTHRITIS.

It can be controlled or treated at just begining, but can not be removed completely.

Ayurved claims that it can cure it, but truth is same can be controlled but not cured.

So, you can not join into Merchant Navy, candidate must be completely fit in all respect.

Probably not.........!

I dont think so, because -2.75 Dioptre is countable under vision disability.

Well, if your weight is in between 45-50 kgs then there will not be any issue.

Weather it is Merchant Navy or Indian Navy Service (INS), candidate must be medically fit in all respect.

The only differeance between both are that INS has also combat duties so its criteria is slightly tougher then MErchant Navy, other wise every thing is same.

Kindly found the attachment below, which will provide an explainatory account of fitness required.

That was made after deducting some combat side fitness, Means we can considered it as a Perfiect Fitness chart for Merchant Navy which will not only meet the National but International Requirement also.

If any candidate fit in that requirement he will never be disqualified in the ground of Medical weakness.
