The current Indian Merchant Navy began before India’s independence from the United Kingdom when the SS Loyalty sailed from India to Britain in 1919. The Indian marine sector has risen since independence, although not to expectations. India now ranks 22nd in the world in terms of total DWT.


The Merchant Navy is a non-combatant commercial fleet that transports merchandise and, on occasion, passengers by sea. Its fleet consists of boats (ships) such as passenger vessels (called liners/cruisers), cargo liners (also known as bulk carriers) that transport goods, or oil tankers (called tankers), as well as other unique types of vehicles. Their vessels might be owned by Indian or foreign maritime corporations. Indeed, the Merchant Navy is the backbone of international trade, transporting cargo throughout the world.


Much of the import-export trade may come to a standstill if the Merchant Navy is not there. Ships today are very modern and technologically demanding, and the safety and efficiency of the ship rely on the professional talent, competence, and commitment to the duty of a sea steward onboard.

Careers in the Merchant Navy

Naturally, a seafarer is required to be extremely competent in order for the ship to operate safely and efficiently. The training in India is of reasonable quality, and Indian sailors are a highly sought-after commodity in the global maritime sector. Today, there are several options to earn a decent living, but the Merchant Navy may also provide equally fulfilling earnings at a young age. Unfortunately, understanding on the topic of “What is Merchant Navy & How Does One Join It?” is limited. It is still the luxury of select people who have family and friends in this profession. With this in mind, some valuable information on a career in the Merchant Navy is offered below.
  1. The sea transports 95% of the world’s trade.
  2. Sea transport is used for both raw materials and finished commodities.
  3. Globalization has increased the circulation of products, which has increased opportunities.
  4. According to industry research, the global demand for Indian officers is high and expanding.
Below are the mentioned positions to make a carrier with the merchant navy in India.
  • As a Navigation Officer (Deck Side)
This officer is in charge of the ship’s navigation, cargo loading/unloading, and general maintenance and administration. After completing their training as a Deck Cadet, the officer is promoted to the position of 3rd officer and then to the level of 2nd officer, chief officer, and eventually Captain/Master of the ship. All promotions are contingent on the individual passing his competency examinations and doing well on board the ship. 

In addition to navigation tasks, a third officer is in charge of life-saving equipment, a second officer of passage planning and navigation equipment, a chief officer of cargo work, and the Captain/Master of the ship.

Following the acquisition of a certificate of competency as second mate (F.G.), an officer is eligible to be appointed as a third or second officer onboard a merchant ship and would draw a handsome salary for subsequent promotions, he must render additional sea service and progressively pass the higher examination appropriate for that rank, viz. first mate (F.G.) and master (F.G.). The certificate of competency as Master (F.G.) allows officers to captain Merchant Navy ships.
  • As an Engineering Officer (Inside side)
A job at sea is both tough and rewarding. It provides a high degree of job satisfaction, a diverse range of experience, and a demanding work environment. Experienced Marine Engineers are in high demand in all industries due to their capacity to manage very big power plants, their inventiveness, their sense of responsibility, and their ability to operate nearly entirely with their own hands with little external support. A Marine Engineer is an important and responsible member of a ship’s crew. 

He must operate and control the engineering systems on board his ship, as well as keep them in excellent working order. This gives him a lot of confidence and experience. However, it must be noted that the life of a Marine Engineer is demanding and not for the faint of heart. The engine room of the ship houses the main engine, boilers, pumps, hydraulic fuel systems, the ship’s electrical generating equipment, and distribution.
  • As a graduate Mechanical Engineer 
The Mechanical Engineering department seeks to deliver the finest mechanical engineering inputs to marine engineers, as well as broad-based expertise in practical applications. Mechanical engineers contribute to significant tasks such as ship building, and workshop activities necessary in ship maintenance such as welding, riveting component machining, assembling and dismantling. Heat transfer, applied mechanics, fluid machinery, refrigeration and air conditioning control, and vibration analysis are all core laboratories of the Mechanical Engineering department. The experiments are carefully chosen to cover the complete spectrum of maritime engineering concepts. They must work with main diesel engines, auxiliary engines, boilers, purifiers, pumps, and other auxiliary equipment. They must also do intensive watch-keeping tasks in plant operation and safety, among other things.
