CDS stands for Combined Defense Service whereas, IMA is Indian Military Academy and candidates willing to join Indian Army are sent to this academy for further training.
The Combined Defense Service exam is conducted for recruitment of candidates in all the defense forces of India but since you are from Arts background, you will be considered eligible only for Indian Army and once you qualify the exam, you will be able to join Indian Military Academy for further training.
The notification of the exam is published on the official website of union public service commission twice a year as the examination is conducted two times a year.
For more information, refer to the official website of UPSC.

IMA can be expanded as Indian Military Academy.

CDS can be expanded as Combined Defense Service examination.

CDS examination is conducted twice a year by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission). This examination acts as an entrance exam for Indian Defense Services viz Indian Military Academy, Indian Air force, Indian Naval force. For joining in IMA you must have completed your graduation of any discipline. So with arts stream graduation you are eligible to join in Indian Military Academy(IMA) but not in air force or navy.
