    Yes you are eligible to join the defence service. You should also secured more then 60% marks and your age should be less then 30 years.
    If you join the defence service through the upsc exam like NDA, CDS then you have a very bright career. No matter if you can not join from this way there are lot of other ways you can enter from that side.

    Hello




    --->
    On account of lower age of NDA candidates, a margin of upto 5.0 cm. in height, 2.5 cm. in leg length (minimum) and 1.0 cm. sitting height (minimum) may be given provided it is certified by the Medical Board that the candidate is likely to grow and come upto the required standard on completion of his training in NDA.

    yes you can join NDA after your +2 standard with any graduation also...




    All the best............

    Re: Can i join Defence if my height is 5.3? Any opportunity for me in defence?

    Hi friend,

    The minimum acceptable height to join defence is 157cm.

    But now you are in 11th standard which is not appropriate to give any entrance exam.

    So, you can not apply for this.

    The minimum qualification should be 12th pass to give the exam of NDA.

    And the candidate should be a male candidate because girls are not allow to give this exam.

    So, You should concentrate in your studies.

    Regards

    yes you have the opportunity to join defence , your height is about 160 cms the requirement for airforce pilot is 162 cms , for army 158cms , and for navy 155 cms ,,so make a choice of yours. you are in class 11 its an early age , try doin pullups which may increase your height, you need only 2 cms to get into airforce as pilot. now you are only eligible for army , navy and technical branch in airforce.

    Re: Can i join Defence if my height is 5.3? Any opportunity for me in defence?

    dear,

    The minimum acceptable height to join defence is 157cm i.e. 5'2''


    But now you are in 11th standard which is not appropriate to give any entrance exam, you must be 12th passed or appearing to apply for NDA which offers you to join defence forces.

    NDA:12th appearing\passed out having math and phy , aged b\w 16.5-19yrs.
    if you are applying for army then phy is not necessary but if you are applying for air force and navy phya nd math both is complusory....

    all the best.....
