Indian navy
The naval division of the Indian armed forces is called as the Indian Navy.

Merchant Navy
The Merchant Navy is concerned with the transportation of passengers or cargo by sea. As a result the task force of the Merchant navy includes tankers, passenger ships and carriers in addition to cargo liners.

Eligibility for Indian navy
Candidates who aspire to join the Indian Navy are supposed to be permanent residents of India.
They are also required to be unmarried in order to get chosen into the Naval Academy.
The candidates must have the minimum age of 18 years when they apply.
The qualification required to join the Naval Academy is a graduate degree in Science or a pass in class XII with Physics and Mathematics as subjects of study.

Eligibility for Merchant Navy
Candidates who seek to join the Indian Merchant Navy must have cleared their class Higher Secondary with Mathematics and Physics in addition to Chemistry subjects.
