yes you are eligible but you will be given or start your career in army as a soldier rather than a officer. and after clearing medical test and physical test you will assign to different department like clerical, medical, war-soldier etc department.

but your Age should be between 16 to 21 years.
There nothing like age concession for any group or religious...
and Physical Standards are following:

Height: 167 cms, relaxable for certain regions.
Weight: 50 kg, relaxable for certain regions.
Chest: 77/82 cm.

hope best for your career!!

Yes, when considered about your age limit you can join through NDA

exam but for NDA exam your education eligibility must be pass in your 12th std.

So you can't join the indian army through NDA exam.

No, you are not eligible to apply because your qualifications are not upto the mark which are required to join Indian Army.
You should be atleast 12th pass to apply for it.
As you are not eligible height and weight are not issue for you.

dear friend,
after completion of 10th standard you will not be eligible to join in Indian Army.
As you have mentioned that you have reached 21 years of age , then you are not eligible for NDA exam..

It is too late for you to join in Indian Army..
Because you are now in 10th standard and to appear in any defense exams like- CDS exam, you have to complete the graduation first..
For completing your graduation it will take 5 more years..
And then your age will be above 26 years..
So, sorry to say you that you are not eligible..
All the best.

Hi,

Your age is just perfect for the job but your qualification seems to be somewhat less and you gotta crack the NDA exam for getting into the Indian army.

Hope this helps

dear u can join army with 10th base only for CRPF,BSF AND ETC. in army age group for 16.5 to 21 year for 12th PCM subject than u can give NDA exam but your age has cross.
here some oppotunity remain for you after join army as 10th base general selection exam and PET. every year army invited to indian people for that. so if you have a 155 Height, 50 kg weight and chest 77/82 with .after clear physical test a Multiple question exam taken than you after medical test you become officer.

Once in the month of September and once in the month of April..

The Notification for the examination is usually released in the months of August and March and the examination is conducted in February and August respectively. Only unmarried graduates are eligible to write the exam.



Age Limits

Naval Academy 19-22 Years
Officers’ Training Academy 19-25 Years


Subject Marks

English 100 marks
General Knowledge 100 Marks
Elementary Mathematics 100 Marks
Total 300 marks


Apart from these things..you should be physically fit and should have a perfect eyesight..

After clearing the written exam, then the interview and then the medical examination..

All the best..

~Hope this helps.. ~

With Warm Regards

Sorry to say that, you are not eligible for the defense examinations, conducted by UPSC & SSC .
as you are a over aged candidate & having insufficient educational requirements.


as you have just 10th certificate as your educational qualification.
after 12th one can apply for Indian army through NDA (national defense academy), the age limit for this examination is 16.5-19 years,.


also after the completion of graduation one can apply in Indian army through CDS examination(combined defense services),.
the age limit for CDSE is 19-24 years.
so, you are not eligible for Indian army.


thank you!

Dear Friend ,

As you said that you are now 21 years old then very sorry to say that you are not eligible to join Indian Army through NDA exam conducted by UPSC as they require a maximum age of 19 years.

How ever you can join Indian Army at this age also through CDS exam but for this you must have completed your graduation from any recognized college / university .

Then you can appear in CDS examination conducted every year by UPSC and if you qualify the written and the interview then you can serve as an officer in Indian Army.

This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.
