    No, you cannot join NDA.

    Girls are not allowed to join NDA because NDA recruits only for permanent commission and girls are not yet give permission to join as permanent commission.

    The case is pending in Supreme Court and the decision may come any day.

    So, wish it comes soon and you get the chance to join NDA.

    But, as of now you can only join Armed Forces in officer cadre after your graduation.

    As per the NDA eligibility criteria girls are not allowed to apply the NDA examination as there is no option given for the girls in gender column.
    Only male is the option for the same.
    If you really want to join any of the defence service then you needs to complete the graduation and after that you will able to apply for the CDS examination.
    Before you apply for this exam you should know that what is CDS.
    CDS is a combined defence services examination which is conducted twice in a year to recruit the aspirants of indian navy, air force and indian army.
    If you like to apply for this exam then you need to be graduate in any discipline for indian army.
    If you like to apply for the indian air force and navy then you must have graduation in physics and mathematics.
    You needs to be unmarried for the same.
    your age to apply for indian millitary academy must be 19 to 24 years.
    For OTA 19 to 25 years.
    For air force academy 19 to 23 years .
    For naval academy 19 to 22 years of age is required.
    selection procedure is similar to the NDA exam as it includes the written examination.
    SSB interview and the medical examination for the final selection.

    thank you.

    dear aspirant,

    Sorry to say that being a girl candidate you are not allowed to sit in NDA exam. NDA exam is conducted by UPSC for only male candidates. So you can't able to write NDA exam any way.
    but you can apply for CDS OTA exam which is also conducted by UPSC for the post in defence. you can't able to apply for other wings like INA, IAFA, IMA because these are only conducted for male candidates.

    For CDS OTA you must be unmarried woman.

    for CDS you must be Physically and mentally fit.

    for OTA you need graduation degree in any discipline from recognized college or university. final year candidates can also apply for CDS exam.

    for OTA your age must be within 19 years to 25 years.

    you have to apply for the exam online on following link:

    Re: Eligibility to join NDA after completing 12th standard for a female candidate?

    Girls are not eligible for NDA examination according to the UPSC notification. Only unmarried male who are having age between 16.5 to 19 years can apply for NDA examination.

    So must not get disheartened by this and take admission into Graduation. After completion of Graduation you will be eligible for CDS Examination for which
    you will be eligible to apply
    .

    If possible you can take NCC also in the college. There is Women Special Entry scheme for NCC Cadets. You must get a 'C' Certificate of NCC with atleast B grade then you will be eligible for this entry. This is a Short Service Commission Entry for Girls.

    For CDS only Graduation is required and age should be between 19 to 25 years. Also note that if you want to join Navy or Air Force then you must have
    studied physics and maths in your academic years.

    The selection is purely based on merit and you must be very well prepared for the examination to get into the Academy.

    -Written Examination

    -SSB Interview

    -Medical Fitness

    Female candidates are not allowed for NDA exam.The first criteria is Male Indian Citizen and there you will be rejected.
    If you want to join Defence sector,you should complete Graduation and then apply for CDS or AFCAT or for SSC Technical for Army.Your chances will be better if you complete engineering.Technical vacancies are more than normal vacancies and you will be posted at higher posts most of the times.Currently after 12th,there is no way for you to get into defence sector.
