    Re: Age, Physical requirements criteria for Army?

    Hello friend,
    Indian territorial army is one of the prestigious defense wing present in the Indian defense forces.Hence the recruitment process would be of higher priority since it involves discipline and other extra qualities.Every candidate is checked for medical and fitness standards thoroughly no matter which category is he from.

    For NDA the candidate must be aged between 16.5 to 19 years of age,And for Combined defense service exam the candidate must be aged between 19 to 25 years of age.First of all the candidate must be a Indian citizen and must be unmarried.For NDA you must have completed 12th board from any recognized college with minimum 60% aggregate,and similarly for CDSE you must be a graduate from any recognized university.

    Physical criteria:
    *Height must be minimum 157.5 cms for men and 152 cms for women.
    *Weight is correlated according to height ratio
    *Eyesight vision must be 6/6 or 6/36 for distant vision.
    *Spectacles corrected vision must be 6/9.
    *Color blind limit is CP-3 LEVEL.

    Below i have mentioned the charts for weight and eyesight:
