New Delhi, May 14: Giving wings to dreams and accomplishing all desired wishes to serve for the country, the Indian Navy has something in store. Sketching smiles, the Indian Navy is all set to conduct the first Indian Navy Entrance Test (Officers) for direct entry of officers after graduation. The computer-based INET (Officers) exam will be held twice a year. The first test will be conducted in September 2019.

This is the first time Indian Navy will conduct computer-based examination for Direct Entry Officers. Likewise, the University Entry Scheme (UES) and Combined Defence Services (CDS) examinations will also continue.

Informing about the same, the Indian Navy tweeted saying, “#IndianNavy introduces Indian Navy Entrance Test (Officers) for all graduate entries. INET (Officers) shall be conducted twice a year w.e.f Sep19. University Entry Scheme (UES) & Combined Defence Services (CDS) entries to continue as hitherto.”

Under the new process, only one advertisement will be published every six months and applicants will need to exercise their option for entries that they wish to be considered for. For information related to entries, age and educational qualifications, candidates can visit www.joinindiannavy.gov.in.

The Ministry of Defence in its statement said that the candidates are advised to register once on the website to fill in their personal, communication and educational particulars, as well as upload their supporting documents. Doing this before the application submission window opens, is advisable in order to save time. Eligible candidates will receive automated email alerts when the application submission window opens.

At present, the officer candidates are shortlisted for interviews by Services Selection Board (SSB) on the basis of marks scored in graduation, or post-graduation for certain entries. Shortlisting for SSB will be now taken on the basis of marks scored in INET (Officers).

For the INET, it will be used for screening for Permanent Commission and Short Service Commission Officer candidates for all graduate entries other than those that are screened by UPSC or University Entry Scheme.
