Method of Entry (Officer)

SAILOR ENTRY [Artificer Apprentice (AA) /Senior Secondary Recruits (SSR)]

In good old days, a sailor only sailed, the job involved typing of knots, swabbing the decks and polishing the brass. But today’s sailor can be a specialist operator, firing guided missiles and homing torpedoes a sonar technician sounding ocean depth from a hi-tech submarine  a data processing technician at a modern supply center, a boiler technician overseeing the operation of the ship’s power plant or a member of an aviation crew soaring high above the clouds. Today, Navy’s adventure is not only in the sea but also in the skies above and the depth below. And for this very reason, the Indian Navy has been called the “Three Dimensional Service”. If you have just left school or college and looking for a career oriented job to pick up, you can join the Indian Navy for an exciting, satisfying career with more security than you would find in most other jobs.

You can join Indian Navy as a sailor also because the sailor literally runs the navy.
