    Are candidates from defence back ground given priority during selections of IAF? Is, IAF a good career option for girls?

    no the candidates from any background are not given any kind of priority....be clear about that. because in defence forces it is not admissible. you cannot give a plane to a unsuitable person just because he is from defence background. and YES IAF is a good career option for girls and boys equally. but it depends whether you want to join or not.. if you are determined for joining IAF then it is definitely a good choice. Best of luck.

    Hello friend,
    No it is not true that candidates from defence background are given priority.
    There is no discrimination in defence on the basis of caste or background.
    Every one has to clear common exam and interview and it is same for everyone.
    No priority is given to defence wards,

    And of course Indian Airforce is a good career to join ,as through it anyone can serve the nation
    and people can fulfill their dream of flying.
    SO all the best

    Hi
    firstly; you appear in thee prescribed exam. & pass like as a general category treated student.
    Then your all tests like as personal interview & medical fitness are also treated as above mentioned condition.
    At last , candidates from defence quota are given more priority than others , but it's a little bit.
    It is the best career either for boys & girls and you also serve your "motherland" after joining "iaf".

    hi !

    A big NO is the answer to your question. They look for people with a certain set of qualities in them and any individual who posses those qualities has equal chance of getting selected.
    Yes one factor can be that people from army background have learnt things about army over the period of time from their parents and exposure to the army atmosphere. So they can have a slight edge as they have a idea of how things are in defense.

    Hope that answers your question !
