The Indian Navy is the naval branch of the Indian Armed Forces — the other two forces included in safeguarding the country are the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force. The President of India is the Supreme Commander of the Indian Navy, while the Chief of Naval Staff commands the Navy.
The primary objective of the Indian Navy is to protect the country's maritime borders and help in the expansion of its forces. The naval body, whose establishment can be traced back to the 17th century, is bestowed with various responsibilities. From defeating threats to developing indigenous systems and weapons, the Indian Navy operates above, on and under the surface of the ocean to help create a secure maritime environment.
Every year, various job opportunities are made available in the Indian Navy. To be eligible for several Indian Navy jobs, you need mandatory 12+ qualification from any government-recognised board or university. There are two methods for applying — NDA (National Defence Academy) entry and Indian Naval Academy entry.
