Navy introduces new exam for selecting Direct Entry Officers
By TOG News Service
May 14, 2019

TOG NEWS SERVICE, NEW DELHI, MAY 14, 2019: THE Indian Navy is introducing computer-based examination for the selection of Direct Entry Officers after graduation. The first Indian Navy Entrance Test (Officers),   ie. INET (Officers), is scheduled in September 2019 in various centers across the country. INET (Officers) would 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.

As of now, 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). Henceforth, shortlisting for SSB would be taken on the basis of marks scored in INET (Officers).

Under the new process, only one advertisement would be published every six months and applicants would need to exercise their option for entries that they wish to be considered for, on the basis of their educational qualification. Details of entries, age and educational qualifications are available on www.joinindiannavy.gov.in. 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 would receive automated email alerts when the application submission window opens.

The INET (Officers) test would have four sections, namely English, Reasoning and Numerical Ability, General Science and Mathematical Aptitude, and General Knowledge. Candidates would need to pass in each section to be considered for SSB call up. Candidates would be called up for SSB interview on the basis of performance in INET (Officers) and their entry preference. To be considered for final Merit List, candidates would need to qualify in SSB and subsequent Medical Examination. Merit List would be drawn up on the basis of marks scored in INET (Officers) and SSB marks. Selected candidates would undergo Basic Training at the Indian Naval Academy.
