    Re: Can a 21 years old candidate apply for NDA if his father is retired Army personnel?

    Friend, presently, you cannot apply for NDA Examination in no way. Because your present age has crossed the required maximum age of 19 years. Required age limit is 16.5 years to 19 years. On the other hand, being a ward of ex-servicemen will not going to help to you any more. Ward of ex-servicemen will be given preferred in the recruitment process only when there is tie between two or more candidates. If you will be able to complete the graduation before the age of 24 years, then there is a fair chance to apply for Army through CDS Examination.WISH YOUR BRIGHT FUTURE

    No there is no chance being a retired army personnel's son you can nor violate upsc conducted rules .mr asreng you are the son of retired personal very nice please follow few lines for you.

    a 12th standard having the age from 16 1/2 years to 19 years can do n.d.a you have crossed the age eligibility

    now i suggest you to complete graduation and try to join in indian army through cds conducted by upsc twice a

    year.and age must be within 19 years to 25 years. After clearing written/physical/medical tests then you

    will get call ssb training after that you can join in indian army.

    Thank you...have a nice day.

    Hey friend,

    No, absolutely not a 21 year old candidate cannot apply for the NDA exam in no ways.

    Reason:

    The reason why you are ineligible is with the age limit which is needed for the exam as the exam states that the candidate appearing for the exam must have a age limit of 16 1/2-19 years of age

    As you are 21 years old you have exceeded the needed age limit for the exam which defines that you are ineligible for applying for the NDA Exam to join in defnece forces of India.

    There are certain other criteria's which are needed to be satisfied along with the age limit,and you have not even satisfied the age limit you are ineligible for applying.

    This exam is being carried out by UPSC and known as one of the Defnece service exam of India and for information regarding the exam check at www.upsc.gov.in

    Hello

    Your father being in army will not provide you with any relaxation in joining army,it is a transparent process and you will have to join through your capabilities.You can not join army just like because your father belonged to army.

    Now as your age is 21 ,by no means you are applicable for NDA,the age limit for NDA is 16.5 to 19 years and you can see that you have crossed your age to apply for NDA,so you can not join army through NDA,its better that you complete your graduation and then come in order to apply in army.There are many options for a graduate candidate in the army.

    Re: Can a 21 years old candidate apply for NDA if his father is retired Army personnel?

    hi

    sorry friend you are not allowed to appear for NDA exam(nation adefense academy) as the specified age limit is 16.5-19 years.you had crossed the age limit to apply for NDA EXAM.

    there is such scheme for reservation whose relatives is /was in defense field.

    rules are same for all( civilian/ex service sons or daughter/).

    one has to obey the rules and regulations meant for them if they want to be the part of it.


    but
    if you are graduate and in the age in between 19-21 years then yes friend ,you can appear for AFCAT(Air force common admission=held once in a year),CDS( combined deense service exam=held 2 times in a year),FTS(fast tract selection).

    for all this you must satify the eligibility criteria which includes qualification,age,physical standards.


    for the exam notification,you need to be in touch with leading newspaper or employment news paper.



    good luck

    thank you

    No Friend,
    There is no such relaxation for the son/daughter of Ex-Servicemen.

    NDA--->>National Defense Academy.

    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA:-

    <>Should have passed 12th level in any stream for Army.

    <>Should have PCM in 12th level for Air Force/Navy.

    <>Final year candidates are eligible.

    <>Age should be 16.5-19years.

    <>Unmarried Male candidates eligible.

    <>Should be Indian citizen.

    <>should be physically strong.

    Since your age have already crossed the limit for NDA you cannot apply.

    NDA doesnot have even age relaxation for any reserved category.

    If you are really interested then you can apply for CDS exam for that you need to have a graduation level.


    ELIGIBILITY FOR CDS:-

    >>Should have a graduation degree in any stream for OTA/IMA.

    >>Should have graduation in Physics/Mathematics for INA/AFA.

    >>Final year candidates are eligible.

    >>Age should be:-
    • IMA:- 19-24years;
    • INA:- 19-22years;
    • AFA:- 19-23years;
    • OTA:- 19-25years.
    >>Should be Indian citizen.

    >>Should be physically and mentally fit.

    Here is the physical standard detail for CDS and also NDA.

    Re: Can a 21 years old candidate apply for NDA if his father is retired Army personnel?

    Dear friend,

    NDA stands for National Defence Academy.

    NDA Exam is a Defence exam which is commenced by UPSC twice in a year.

    Though your father was a Retired Indian Army, but you will have to give NDA Entrance for selection to any wing of NDA, Pune.

    You will not get any recession for entrance to National Defence Academy.

    Exam Pattern of NDA Exam will be same for you:


    But as you have told your age is 21 years old. So, you are not eligible for NDA Exam.

    Your age doesn't satisfy Eligibility Criteria for NDA Exam.

    According to NDA Eligibility Criteria,

    Candidates must have age between 16.5 to 19 years.

    For more information and previous year question papers, you may visit: http://upsc.gov.in/
