    Hi,
    Good to see your aspiration to join Indian air force
    As you are an engineering student I advice you to complete your course first

    you can directly apply for TGC eng entry
    eligibility criteria for that:
    -qualification BE/B.tech
    -age limit is 20-27 years
    -unmarried/married
    -nationality Indian
    Vacancies will be notified twice a year in the employment news and leading news papers
    Applications to be recieved by apr/may and oct/nov
    SSB date is likely in mar/apr and sept/oct
    So complete your engineering course first and go for it!!
    Good luck!!!

    If you have 60% for the B.tech, you can join the air force in technical field. But your age must be between 19 to 23 to join the air force.

    Remember , for the TECHNICAL Post in Either ARMY or in AIRFORCE , YOU should have a minimum of 60% in B.tech

    So, dont worry about Not having 60% in 12th . The Important point to remember is , You should have a minimum of 60% in B.tech

    So, in FINAL Year of your Engineering , You can apply for the AFCAT exam to join AIRFORCE in TECHNICAL BRANCH

    AFCAT : -

    ~~ For the TECHICAL BRNACH , Your age should be between 18-28 years only



    ** After compeltion of Engineering ,You can apply for the TECHNICAL POST in Army
    You should have a minimum of 60% in B.tech to apply for the post
