    Hello,

    After graduation or in your final year only, you can apply for IAF through CDS examination. It is a graduate level examination taken by UPSC twice in a year. Through this, you will get enter into armed force i.e in flying branch with permanent commission.

    Other than this, you have the chances to appear for short service commission for same flying branch.

    You can be a part of ground duty through CET.

    Thank you
