    Hi,

    It is better to solve your query if you have given your D.O.B

    As you have Done your engineer i.e graduate Then Posts i.e SSC Technincal, Non-Technical, IMA, NCC 'C' Certificate, UES etc are may available For you..

    But as your age is 25 years it is very critical condition.

    Because Out of above named posts for Commissioned Officer You must be either in between 19 to 23 years of age Or 21 to 25 years Of age.

    i.e Even For Non-Technical Staff age needed is 21 to 25 years of age..

    So check your D.O.B and decide for which exam you are eligible.


    Lets See how many modes are there to join Indian Army.

    If you have Done Graduation with Bachelor's of Computer Application then Below are some Fields in which you can Apply for Only if you come under Age Limits i.e from 21 years to 24 years

    One is CDSE i.e Combined Defense Services

    For IMA i.e Indian Military academy age should be 19 years to 23 years of age. (For This you are Eligible in Educational Point of View) =>YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE

    For IAF i.e Indian Air force age should be 19 years to 23 years. =>YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE
    (Degree of a recognised University (with Physics and Mathematics at 10+2 level) or Bachelor of Engineering.)

    For Officer's training academy it should be 19 years to 25 years. =>DEPEND UPON YOUR DATE OF BIRTH
    (Degree of a recognized University or Equivalent )

    and last for Naval academy it should be 19 to 22 years. =>YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE

    TGC(Technical Entry Scheme) :- =>YOU ARE ELIGIBLE
    The candidate age should be 20years and 27 years.
    Graduate(Engg.)

    IF you not eligible to any one of the exam then Don't worry There are Some Entries under which you can opt for Indian Army.

    One is JCO's (Religious Teacher), For this You need to have graduate enough with 27 to 34 years of age.
