    Re: Age limit to enter into Indian Navy or Air Force?

    Hi

    Your age is of 23 years so you can join the Indian Air force and Indian Navy through CDS exam.

    For CDS exam you must have a bachelor degree in science from a recognized university.

    For Air force your age must be in between 19-23 years.

    For Indian Navy your age must be in between 19-22 years

    But i am really sorry that you can not apply for both Indian Navy and Indian Air force because you have done graduation from commerce stream so you are eligible only for the Army wing.

    Thank you...

    Hi

    If your age is 23 years then you can apply only for Indian air force and Indian Army.

    You can not apply for the Indian navy.

    Because The Age limit for the diffent wings is given as:-

    1.For Indian Navy:- 19-22 years

    2.Indian Air Force :-19-23 years

    3.For Indian Army:-19-23 years

    4.For Officers Training Academy (OTA) :- 19-25 years.

    So you can not apply for the Navy because you have crossed the upper age limit.

    You must have a graduate degree in science if you want to join the air force.

    After completing BDS you can’t join the Indian navy but you can join the Indian army.

    To apply for the Indian navy you must have math and physics as compulsory subject in intermediate.

    So you can apply only for Indian army through CDS exam.

    This exam is conducted at national level.

    You can apply for the CDS exam till the age of 25 years.

    You must be the citizen of India.

    You can fill up the application form in online and offline mode.

    Re: Age limit to enter into Indian Navy or Air Force?

    Friend, it is not possible for you to join Indian Navy or Indian Airforce because you have not taken the science stream in the intermediate level which is most essential for aspirants of joining Navy & Airforce.For joining defence forces, candidate has to apply for CDS Examination either in the final year of degree or after the completion of degree.Age limitation set for CDS Examination is as follows: # 19 years to 22 years for Naval Academy # 19 years to 23 years for Airforce Academy # 19 years to 24 years for Indian Military Academy # 19 years to 25 years for Officer Training AcademyAs per your present age, you will not fall in the required age limit for Navy & Airforce at the time of completion of degree. Then the only option left for you to apply for Army through CDS Examination. For this, you may apply for following academies: # Officer Training Academy # Indian Military Academy
