Looking to serve the nation and desirous of joining the Indian Navy?
Now it is easier to join the Indian Navy as all one needs to do is now walk into any Common Services Centre (CSC) across the country and avail assistance in filling up online application forms (for joining the Indian Navy). This service by CSCs will be at a very nominal fee of Rs 60 (plus GST). Usage of this facility would significantly ease the application process however, it is entirely optional.
A MoU to this effect was exchanged in the presence of Alphons Kannanthanam, Union Minister of Electronics and Information Technology, between Vice Admiral AK Chawla, Chief of Personnel, Indian Navy, and Dr Dinesh Tyagi, CEO CSC e-Governance Services India Ltd, at a function in New Delhi on 27 November 17.
Building upon an existing agreement, the new MoU provides an excellent opportunity to applicants to benefit from the vast network of more than 2.5 lakh CSCs. Applicants will be assisted in correctly filling up application forms, scanning and uploading relevant documents and making payment for examination fees, as applicable. Applicants in rural and remote areas, with challenges of reliable internet connectivity, will benefit immensely.
It has been ascertained that the Indian Navy would advertise through CSCs as well as utilise their services for e-KYC during recruitment across the nation.
