Dear Friend,

You can join Indian Army through NDA and CDS examination but it totally depends on the following two factors :

* Educational Qualifications

* Age Criteria

If your age is between 18-24 years with graduation from any recognized college/university , then you are eligible for CDS Exam otherwise you are not eligible for the exam.

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.
