Dear Umesh,
The Merchant navy is no more for ECE guys, this is the time when Electrical and Mechanical guys can only survive after spending a huge amount and time.

There are people in the market who will ask you to join the ETO course, but this course is not for ECE candidates and no more valid. some institutes may conduct the course on their own, and you can do the course after spending huge amount but will not get the Indian CDC and a compatible job with your qualification.
Other CDC like Belize, Panama, Liberian will not work at all, they are just useless and could be fake.
There are no good jobs available even for the Mechanical guys, they spend lakhs of rupees on courses but don't get the job. Now you can imagine what may happen with other guys of different fields.

I will better suggest you to join some job after your which is in your field only. Where there is scope, good social life and most important is the family touch.
