It is really inspiring to see you aspire for the Indian Defense sector. Your spirit of joining the Indian Air Force and serving the nation is really appreciable. However, we are sorry to inform you that you cannot join Indian Air Force at this moment in the flying or technical branch. This is because there is no opening for the diploma candidates. However you can join the Airmen technical group X. The advertisement is usually made by IAF in the leading newspapers and official website. However the remuneration will be less, hence it will be beneficial for you to join air force after you complete your graduation as you will not only get higher rank but also better remuneration.

You can directly get admission in the second year of B Tech course through Lateral entry scheme in various government as well as private engineering colleges.

Then complete your B Tech course properly with good grades and then after apply for Air Force. However, in the 3rd year of your engineering you can apply for Indian Air Force through University Entry Scheme by giving AFCAT exam. But you need to remember that you should not have any backlogs till that time and on completion of your B Tech degree you need to score overall atleast 60%.

You can also apply for Indian Air Force after completion of your B Tech course through the CDSE exam. There is no percentage criteria for this exam. However you should be unmarried and your age should be between 19-23 years. The advertisements are usually done in the leading newspapers in the month of June and December.

The official website of IAF is :- www.careerairforce.nic.in/‎
