    Hello

    YES YOU WILL BE ALLOWED,THERE IS NO ISSUE WITH YOUR HEIGHT.

    Minimum height required is 152 cm ,with minimum age is 19.
    You must know that 1 foot=30.48cm.
    As your height is 5.2 that makes your height 30.48 multiply 5.2 equals to 158.496cm.

    which is way above the minimum requirement,do not worry just try hard for SSB interview.
    A old notification of CDSE have been uploaded for your reference.

    Hey friend,

    If you want to join in OTA which stands for Officer Training Academy and for joining in this force you need to write the CDS Exam(Combined Defence Service) and is held as CDS I and CDS II,

    As you have asked for joining in OTA the qualification which you need to satisfy are:

    ~ The candidate appearing for the exam must be a Citizen of India

    ~ The Martial Status for the exam is that the candidate must be a Unmarried male candidate.

    ~ The Age limit needed for joining in OTA is that the candidate must have 19-24 years

    ~ Education qualification needed for the exam is that the candidate must have completed a Degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage

    ~ The candidate appearing for the exam must be Physically fit.

    Physical Standard:

    The minimum height required for Males is 157.5 cm and not 152 cm as stated by someone else.152 cm is the minimum height required for females.You can check the notification of CDS to know more about the exact Age-Height-Weight ratio required for entry into Army/Navy/Air Force through CDS.Your height is above the minimum standard so you would be eligible if your measurements are correct and standard.Get ready for the physical tests and other important aspects for SSB.There are several other factors which leads to disqualification of candidates in the physical and medical test.

    There is no separate relaxation for any caste or category. You can not compromise with the safety of nation based on caste reservation by relaxing the standards of a defence personnel.The minimum height required for Army is 152cm for females and 157cm for Males.This is same for IMA and OTA through CDS.You measure yourself properly and check out again based on centimetre units rather than converting and all that as there in the physical checkup they will not convert and on finding any shortcomings they will directly reject the candidate.
