No, there is no chance for you to join in defence which is the highest honor of a citizen to serve the country. The reason behind it, is that for joining in defence there are certain procedure such as you should write the entrance exam for the designated posts and there are many entrance exams which are conducted in India.

Having completed +2 and being 26 years old makes you ineligible for applying as you are not satisfying the criteria's in either cases. The minimum qualification needed for joining in defence is that you should have completed +2 and have 16 1/2 - 19 1/2 years of age.

You will be satisfying the educational qualification, whereas in the other case you will dissatisfy the age limit needed. In the other case if you see there are entrance exams for your age limit but for those exams, a minimum qualification needed is a degree from a recognized university.

So, you are ineligible for joining in defence.

As you have passed 12th exam so you are eligible for " NDA " Examination but the age of your's is very high so based on that you are not eligible for NDA Examination.

With Diploma qualification you are not eligible for " CDS Examination ". To apply for defense sector through CDS you must do " graduation " before that. Being a diploma candidates you have a chance to apply for graduation.

So make your career in a right way you need to complete graduation for it. Through CDS Examination you can go for any of the jobs i below three wings.

<> Indian Air Force

<> Indian Navy

<> Indian Army .

The Combined Defence Services Examination is conducted twice a year by UPSC for recruitment into the Indian Military Academy, Officer Training Academy, Indian Naval Academy, and Indian Air force Academy.

Basic Eligibility for joining Defence

Educational Qualification

1. For Indian Military Academy/Officer's Training Academy : Degree from a recognized university or equivalent.

2. For Naval Academy : Bachelor of Engineering.

3. For Air Force Academy: Degree of a recognized university with Physics and Mathematics at 10+2 level or Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology.

Age limit:

1. Indian Military Academy: 19-24 years.

2. Air Force Academy: 19-23 years.

3. Naval Academy: 19- 22 years.

4. Officers Training Academy: 19-25 years.

However, age relaxation of 5 years given to SC/ST/OBC categories.

** Male candidate should be unmarried.

So, yes you are eligible for defence exam but only if you belong to SC/ST/OBC category. If you belong to general category then I am sorry to say you are not eligible as I have already mentioned above the maximum age for general category is 25 years not more than that.

You are not eligible for defense service after completed diploma in mechanical engineering and 26 years old.

You can join defense service after 12th standard through NDA exam.

CDS exam after graduation degree to join defense service.

Either do 12th standard or graduation from a recognized university to join defense service.

I will suggest you to complete graduation first. Your age is 26 years now. It is not possible to write NDA exam. That need 12th to appear.

After Graduation you can apply for various exams through which you can join Indian defence services.

After graduation you can get into indian defence through SSC officer entry scheme.

Through AFCAT exam you can get into Indian Air Force.

Through exams conducted by Indian army time to time for the requirement in Indian Defence services.
