    I am Nehal,
    I have completed my graduation in Electrical Engineering and willing to join Merchant Navy.
    So I need clarification on the following queries.

    2>How is the career path of an ETO?
    3>Can i become a master / pilot by going through any sort of examinations or my career will end up only as an ETO?
    4>What could be the highest pay scale of an ETO ?
    5>Does ETO is equivalent to Chief Engineer?
    6>The General on board duration contract of an ETO?
    7>Does An ETO is a deck cadet or an engine cadet?
    8>Minimum years of experience required to become a captain?
    9>Do The Great Eastern provides 100% job assurance?
    10>Is it worthful to invest 4.5 lacs for the course of ETO?
    11>Do the companies pay during holidays for pilot or officers?
    12>This one is a bit out of context but too
    which is the best career option aviation or merchant navy?

    YES. If you wish to join deck side, you need to start fresh fulfilling the age criteria.

    2>How is the career path of an ETO?
    You will be joining as Trainee ETO with salary ranging from 400-900 USD depending upon the company and type of ship. After Promotion and passing the exams , you will become ETO with a valid COC. The salary range will be- 3000- 5000 USD again depending on company and ship type

    3>Can i become a master / pilot by going through any sort of examinations or my career will end up only as an ETO?
    Electro Technical Officer is the highest post for an electrical engineer on vessel.

    4>What could be the highest pay scale of an ETO ?
    Answered above. It may vary depending on your experience, company, and type of ship

    5>Does ETO is equivalent to Chief Engineer?
    NO. Refer Q 3

    6>The General on board duration contract of an ETO?
    6 Months

    7>Does An ETO is a deck cadet or an engine cadet?
    No. You will be joining as Trainee Electrical officer

    8>Minimum years of experience required to become a captain?
    You cannot become captain. Refer Q 3

    9>Do The Great Eastern provides 100% job assurance?
    They provide training on ship as trainee eto. Later it will depend on availability of ship and your performance.

    10>Is it worthful to invest 4.5 lacs for the course of ETO?
    Depends on your career interest. The job market is not at its best now. Proceed with caution.

    11>Do the companies pay during holidays for pilot or officers?
    Depends on what type of contract you are. In rotation contract, you get all round salary (less than one-time contract)

    12>This one is a bit out of context but too
    which is the best career option aviation or merchant navy?
    Cannot comment as Aviation field is not my expertise.

    Best of Luck.
