    Re: Eligibility to apply in CDS for B.Sc pursuing female married candidate?

    Being a Female candidate,you will be eligible for only OTA from CDS.OTA is OPfficer Training Aacdemy and qualification required is graduation from any stream.Age limit required is 19-25years and it is Short Service Commission of 10years Compulsory + 4years extendable.
    It is the only wing of CDS whre females are allowed.IMA,INA and AFA does not allow females.OTA allows Unmarried males BUT females can be married or unmarried/issueless widows/issueless divorcee females are allowed.
    Being married will not disqualify you as long as you satisfy the age limit criteria..

    --You must be Indian

    Re: Eligibility to apply in CDS for B.Sc pursuing female married candidate?

    Through CDS examination, one can join any of these four academies:

    Air Force Academy, Indian Military Academy, Indian Naval Academy and Officers Training Academy

    Females are eligible to join only Officers Training Academy out of these four but for that she should be unmarried or issueless widow.

    So, you are not eligible for CDS examination.

    However, there are many good opportunities available for you in other sectors.

    Re: Eligibility to apply in CDS for B.Sc pursuing female married candidate?

    Hello, you have violated CDS norms, first to do CDS(combined defence services)you need to be a Graduate or final year candidate from the recognized University to appear

    CDS entrance examination.Secondly you have got married then you are not eligible for UPSC CDS entrance examination.So, you can not join in defence through CDS.

    CDS entrance exam is conducted by Union Public service Commission twice in a year.

    So, as a female candidate pursuing BSc & married you can go for other jobs.

    Thank You,

    Hey friend,

    The CDS Exam is conducted by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission) and this exam is held every year as CDS I and CDS II.

    This exam is conducted for candidate to join in:

    >> Indian Military Academy

    >> Indian Navy

    >> Indian Air Force

    >> Officer Training Academy


    As you have not mentioned for which force you are interested in joining it is tough for me to say the criteria's which you need to satisfy in getting into them

    As you have told that you are a Girl you are not eligible for joining in Indian Military Academy,Indian Navy or Air Force as for them you need to be a Unmarried male candidate as per the Martial Status framed for the exam.

    You can only join in Officer Training Academy which accepts candidate who is a Unmarried or Married male/female candidate.

    The other criteira's which you need to satisfied along with the Martial status is that the candidate should be a Citizen of India

    The age limit needed for the exam is that the candidate must have 19-25 years of age

    The Education qualification needed for the exam is that the candidate must have completed a Degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage.

    Apart from all this the candidate appearing for the exam must be Physically fit.

    If you are going to satisfy all these criteria for the exam then you can apply for the CDS Exam.

    You can apply for the exam in 2 modes namely:

    # ONLINE

    # OFFLINE

    Re: Eligibility to apply in CDS for B.Sc pursuing female married candidate?

    Friend, as CDS Examination is equally open for both male and females. There is no any gender based biasness. But one mandatory condition fixed for CDS Examination is that candidate must be compulsorily UNMARRIED. Any married boy or married girl is summarily rejected. Married candidates are not considered eligible for CDS Examination irrespective of having brilliant academic qualification or good physical health. At these circumstances, you should leave the thought of getting any defence job. You should look at any other Civilian Government job in banking sector, railway, etc. Wish your bright future.

    Re: eligibility to apply in CDS for B.Sc pursuing female married candidate?

    Hi friend,

    I think Air Force Academy, Indian Military Academy, Indian Naval Academy and Officers Training Academy
    Females are eligible to join only Officers Training Academy out of these four but for that she should be unmarried or issue less widow.
    So, you are not eligible for CDS examination.
    However, there are many good opportunities available for you in other sectors.
    So you can think and take good decision

    Thanks!!!
    all the best............
