You can pursue your career in Indian Air force as a pilot after graduation. There are three types of selection process held for graduates.
1. Combined Defense Service Examination (CDSE)
2. NCC (special entry)
3. SSC (short service commission)
For technical branch you should have graduate in engineering.
You can also apply for ground duty in selected branch. But if you are a girl then you can apply only by Short service commission. Boys candidate can choose between permanent service commission and short service commission.
