    Re: Can a 23 years old fresher commerce graduate join Indian Army? Procedure to apply for the same?

    dear arnab.,

    you have to rush if you really want to join army,
    because your age is too , as you are 23yrs and you will not be able to join army,
    after age of 24yrs.

    you may join army through CDS:
    graduate in any discipline,
    age limit is 19-24yrs.

    or you will be able to join SSC(Non-Technical)
    branch of indian army:
    graduate in any discipline,
    age limit is 19-25yrs.

    all the above mentioned entries are available twice in a yr...

    all th best.......
