    Re: Can a female candidate apply for NDA exam? Why only Male option is there in gender column of application form?

    No my dear friends girls are not eligible to apply for NDA. this is a rule of UPSC and defence service board. a girl can not apply for NDA because if a girl really want to join army then they can apply after there graduation for CDS,OTA,SSC exams.
    in NDA defence give a special tanning with graduation degree to boys and after passing out NDA boys went to the IMA. but a girl can directly apply for IMA through CDS entry so there is no need to apply for NDA later it become the same level.

    so dear girls are not eligible to apply for NDA but you can apply for these entries after your graduation

    CDS
    minimum qualification is graduation in any stream for army. and for air force and navy graduation from B.tech or BE.
    age limit is 19 to 24 for army and for air force and navy 19 to 23
    only for unmarried
    nationality is Indian

    SSC(tech)
    minimum qualification is b.tech or BE
    age limit is 21 to 27 can apply
    nationality is Indian

    SSC(non tech)
    minimum qualification is graduation in any field
    age limit is 21 to 27 can apply
    nationality is Indian

    dear you can apply for these entries after your graduation

    best of luck

    Re: Can a female candidate apply for NDA exam? Why only Male option is there in gender column of application form?

    hi

    yes its true ,that for NDA exam only men are eligible..not girls..might be it is because men are mentally and physically strong when compared to women which is the most important criteria..they can handle and face any hard situation..

    but it doesn't mean that girls can'nt join the defense..they can enter into defense after completing graduation or pursuing final year by attempting CDS exam

    age required for this 19-24 years

    height=152cm for women and 157 cm for men

    should be medically fine

    free from disabilities and infection

    for further details visit the official website= www.upsc.gov.in

    good luck

    thank you

    girls are not eligible for NDA.

    because the basic qualification for NDA is you must be an unmarried male to join defense through NDA.

    but after graduation you can join defense through various examinations like CDS,AFCAT,SSB.UES etc.

    so,sorry because you can NOT give NDA

    Sorry but a female candidate cannot apply for NDA exam.
    A female candidate is not eligible for NDA exam.
    The eligibility criteria of NDA exam clearly states that NDA is meant only for male,unmarried candidate.
    That is why only male option is there in gender column of application form.

    But you don't worry.
    If you want to join defence,then you can apply for CDS exam.
    Girls are eligible for CDS exam.
    But you can give CDS exam only after your graduation.

    All the Best !!!

    Re: Can a female candidate apply for NDA exam? Why only Male option is there in gender column of application form?

    Hi

    I am really sorry to say that NO GIRLS CAN APPLY FOR THE NDA EXAMINATION. This is why there is no column for the girls in the NDA form.

    This is a rule laid by the Government of India via the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission), which is the governing body of all the Class 1 Officers Entrance Exams conducted in India.

    NDA is basically the National Defense Academy

    It is conducted to selection of the candidates for the various posts in the Army, Navy and Air Force right after they pass out of Class 12th. There are also some basic eligibility criteria's which all must follow or meet in order to apply for the same.

    Do not be depressed. Instead I would suggest you to take up graduation in any Science or Commerce stream in order to become eligible for the CDS which is the Combined Defense Services.
    This is also organized by the UPSC. You can apply for this as in this girls can also apply.

    You should be a minimum graduate, a citizen of India, age between 21-35 years, and relaxations are provided for the SC/ST/OBC candidates.
    So at first take up graduation in some stream.

    Hope this helps

    All the best

    Regards
    RANJEET

    CDS combined defence services examination is conducted by the union public service commission of india.
    you can get entry into any of the three branches
    indian army
    indian navy
    indian air force.
    graduate in any discipline is required to apply for the indian army
    and graduate in engineering physics and maths to apply for the air force and navy.
    age for air force 19 to 23 years of age.
    19 to 24 years of age fo IMA.
    19 to 25 years of age for OTA.
    19 to 22 years for indian navy.
    selection is based on the
    written test
