The Navy has made it clear that, “it is an offence to declare false educational /professional qualification. This attracts outright withdrawal or dismissal and hand over to civil police for prosecution. “Any certificate or qualification not declared or tendered and accepted during the recruitment exercise is not acceptable after recruitment and cannot be tendered for the purpose of change of branch or advancement while in the naval service.”
Applicants with higher educational qualifications than OND are not eligible to apply.
