Indian Military Academy(IMA) and Officer Training Academy(OTA) both are
the training institutes of the Indian Army training new officers. In both of the
institutes new officers of Indian army are trained.

The IMA is located in Dehradun and OTA in Chennai. The difference in both of the institutes is that in OTA a candidate will get the short service commission where as in IMA a candidate will get the permanent commission. The duration of service through short service commission is of 10 years which can be extent to 4 or 5 years.

As per my suggestion its better to make your first choice IMA because you will get the permanent commission through IMA. Other wise there not any difference in between IMA and OTA.

hi,
Yes, an officer of Short service commission can join the permanent commission .
For this after 4year of service you have to qualify the entrance exam conducted by armed commission.

If you qualify the exam you have to go for Interview and after passing all your SSC will converted into Permanent Commission.

good luck!

There is no difference only thing is female candidates are eligible for Officer Training Academy and this is short service commission.

  • Officer Training Academy

Military Academy :- The candidate must have a graduate in any discipline from a recognized university or deemed university and age limit for this examination is 19 years and 24 years at the time of appearing for this examination.There is no minimum percentage for this examination and unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply for this examination.Candidates who are appearing in the final year of degree course can also apply for this examination.

Any eligible candidates like B.Sc,B,C.A,B.Com,B,B.M,B.E,B.Tech,M.BBS.....etc.

Officer Training Academy :- Bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university or equivalent qualification. and age limit for this examination is 19 years and 25 years at the time of appearing for this examination.There is no minimum percentage for this examination and unmarried male/female candidates are eligible to apply for this examination.Candidates who are appearing in the final year of degree course can also apply for this examination.

Candidates appearing for IMA have to appear for written exam for Maths, English and General Studies,
whereas for OTA only English and General Studies are applicable.
IMA candidates undergo 1 year and OTA Candidates undergo 11 months of training. at the end of which in both cases they are given the rank of Lt in Army. IMA candidates get permanent commission whereas OTA candidates get Short service Commission (SSC) for 10 years.

in my point of view IMA is the better when compared to ota.

CDS is the combine defence exam which is held by UPSC twice in year.
When you are submitted your CDS form then you put your prefrences like
1 IMA
2.NAVY
3.AIR FORCE
4.OTA
IMA stands for indian military acadamy and OTA stands for officer training acadamy.
your cds marks allow you in IMA or OTA.
You should prefered IMA first than OTA
