hi,
it is entirely your preference,
if you want to serve the nation then go for indian navy and if you want to serve yourself then go for merchant navy,
only the thing is that getting into indian navy is not very easy and you have to clear many tests,were as getting into merchant navy is bit easy

Hi,
As far as I have seen and my experiences tells that Indian Navy is far more better than Merchant Navy in providing quality of life. what would you do with the money you earn in Merchant navy when you can't enjoy on time properly.

Definitely i would prefer the Indian Navy rather than choosing Merchant Navy.

Indian Navy is totally different from Merchant navy,while the former deals with War and its personals are well trained
whereas,the Merchant navy deals with transporting cargo and occasionally, passengers, by sea.

The Indian Navy guards & protects the naval borders of the nation,everyone will be proud to be in the Indian Navy as it will provide a chance to serve his/her country.
Whereas,the merchant navy has a business as its motive.

A person working in Merchant Navy gets totally disconnected from the family as he have to travel for long in the sea.
The case is different in the Indian Navy.

So,this and many are the factors are the reasons for my choice of INDIAN NAVY.

Merchant Navy nd indian Navy...are both incomparable with eachother...Since the word navy is in both..It creates a lot of confusion..

In my opinion..Indian Navy is much better than merchant navy..in terms of reputation,facilities,job satisfction..

I would like to suggest for ur interest because both are high level jobs. Merchant Navy is for the country as well as Indian Navy is for the country.
Anyone can join Merchant navy easily but it takes a long time to become an engineer onboard and Indian Navy is a defence one where as u said a great reputation and respect would be gained as compared to MNavy.
If you would ask me to choose the option just between these two I would choose The Indian Navy.

It entirely depend upon your interest. what do you want from job -high salary or royality and standard. if you want high salary then merchant navy should be preffered as it is well-known for its high payoff. but if you want to serve your nation then you should join Indian navy. but joining navy is not very easy.you have to face so many tests whereas joining merchant navy is not so difficult.

Well of course Merchant navy is known for its high pay but it cannot provide the facilities provided by the Indian navy.

If its all about making money then Merchant navy is the better option.
Indian navy provides you respect in the society where as you can't get the same respect for merchant navy.

Indian navy provides you satisfaction for the job where as in Merchant navy you have to work for 6 months in the tough sea's which cannot give you much satisfaction.

It totally depends upon interest- whether you want to serve your nation or want good salary. but in my opinion indian navy is much better than merchant navy due to its standard, royality ,fame because money is not everything.

it depends upon the choice of student- whether he want to earn high salary only or want to do something for his country. merchant navy is well-known for its high salary and indian navy is the symbol of proudness. getting into indian navy is however a difficult task .

See if you join institute for merchant navy you have to pay some where about 2-5 lakhs. Then get trained after that you have to qualify the exam & then you get placed. If you don't qualify exam you are in loss. The best one is join indian navy & study hard for it qualify the exams without giving a large amount & if you get qualified you during training you will be paid and it is also a respectable job. After retirement one get's pension also & one can join merchant navy without investing any money. That's all about indian navy & merchant navy

Both are two different things. One is related with serving the nation whereas the other with cargo, import and export. We cannot compare or say which one is better. It wholly depends on a person's interest.
I would choose Indian Navy because I wish to serve India. If we work with dedication, we can protect our motherland from her foes.It is a thing of pride to serve the country. In merchant navy, we have to be away from our family for continuous 6 months on the ship. Though we get high salary, we do not get the inner satisfaction which we get by serving India.

As Far as my Interest is concerned it would like to Prefer Merchant Navy Because A job in Merchant Navy is indeed an alluring option for everyone. The principal functions of merchant ships include delivery of goods from one country to another country. The fleet of merchant ships includes cargo ships, carriers, passenger vessels, tankers and other special vehicles. Therefore this forms an entire range of responsibilities and thus creates a huge scope of job opportunities. Along with cargo ships, there are also passenger ships and luxurious cruise liners, which also come under the scope of the Merchant Navy.

Merchant navy careers are one of the few careers where the salary is relatively high. It can range anywhere between Rs.12, 000 - Rs.8 lakhs per month though the pay structure differs from company to company, city to city, the export-import needs, seniority etc. All crew and officers are given free meals on board and senior officers are permitted to bring their spouses along for the voyages. Post-retirement, these officers are in demand for consulting and advising. Some even venture into allied fields like ship care and maintenance.

Life in the merchant navy can be adventurous for all those with wanderlust. The long periods of solitude notwithstanding, the opportunity to see the world and get paid for it just cannot be argued away.

Thanks

both merchant navy and indian navy is reputed jobs today..
merchant navy gives you more exposer and you can earn more money also but there is insecurity of job and there is no pension...
whereas if you are in indian navy there is a proud feeling of being in the indian armed forces and feeling of serving the country...jobs are more decorates and also there is pension and health insurance for you and your family even after retirement....so i suggest to go for india navy and if dont get there then you can try for merchant navy......

even a sweeper serves the country ..so dont say if u want to serve the country u shld join indian navy...indian navy s a military force and the ppl in it get trained wit more military skills....
But in merchant navy its more of technical expertise and survival in rugged conditions...indian navy officers get a better life than those in merchant navy..more respect , and sense of pride...whereas merchant navy gives more money and technical knowledge..both r entirely different and must nt be compared
