    Hi

    Yeah sure you can apply for the Indian Army. You have to sit for the CDS - Combined Defense Services. This is an entrance for the purpose of officers entry in the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force. This is conducted by the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) every year.
    Its basically for the entry of graduates both technical and non technical for the various posts of the Indian Defense Wings. If you wish to apply for the same, you have to first meet the Eligibility Criteria's as they are laid by the commission and government of India.

    1. You should be an Indian Citizen.
    2. Your age should be within 19-23 for the Indian Air Force, and 21-25 years for the Indian Army and Navy.
    3. The applicant should be a graduate in ANY stream from a recognized university with over 60% aggregate in it. A relaxation of 5% is given to SC/ST/OBC.
    4. Also physical and mental fitness is a must for the defense jobs.

    If you are of the age 23, you have missed out on the Air Force wing as you have passed out the Eligibility Criteria. So you can apply for the OTA - Officer's Training Academy as its the one available for you at the moment.
    However the CDS 2013 on February if also closed with its application process. Hence if you have not applied for it, I am sorry that you cannot apply anymore. You have to wait for the next notification of the CDS which is expected by the mid of this year.

    Hope this helps
    All the best
    Regards
    RANJEET

    Re: Can a 23 years old commerce graduate join Army?

    Hello

    YES YOU ARE APPLICABLE FOR INDIAN ARMY.

    The best way to apply for the Indian army is CDSE.\
    A entrance through which you can apply for the

    IMA-Indian Military Academy-The graduation from any stream.Age Limit-19 to 24 years(at the time of commencement of the course).
    OTA-Officers Training Academy-The graduation from any stream.Age limit-19 to 25 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    Hence you should hurry to apply for the IMA and OTA because it nearly takes 1 year to start the course from the date of applying for it.The age limit (upper fro IMA) is 24 years and your age now is 23 years,so you should hurry up.

    The CDSE is conducted twice in a year and the notifications are released in the month of the June and October in the employment news paper and in the official website of UPSC.www.upsc.gov.in

    For more information visit the official website of army.
