Dear Aspirant,


Yes you are eligible in terms of Age.

And yes you can apply for it since you are in the last semester of the Graduation.

The minimum qualification for this thing is Graduation.

It is different for both job post like

Flying Branch Age Cut off - 19 to 23 years (as on Jan 2014)

Technical Branch Age Cut off - 18 to 28 years (as on JAn 2014)

Minimum Height for women is 152 cms with correlated weight.

Few more details are attached in the document below.Please kindly check the details in the PDF file.

Then if you are coming in all these factors then you are eligible for writing the exam.

Then if you are selected for any post mentioned in the above will be getting trained for few months at the same time the salary is payed to them.

Hope this info helps you.

All the best for your future endeavor's.
