    Hey friend,

    - Joining in Indian Army after B.Tech from Computer Branch is possible as you can write the CDS Exam

    - CDS - Combined Defence Academy

    - But as you have said that you are a 2 year student,you cannot apply for the exam for joining in Indian army as only final year candidates are eligible to apply for the CDS Exam.

    - For the CDS Exam girls are not eligible for the exam as regarding the Martial Status needed for the exam.Only Unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply for the CDS Exam

    - Apart from that the candidate need to be a citizen of India.The age limit for joining in Indian Army is that the candidate must have 21-24 years.

    - Education qualification needed for the CDS exam is that the candidate must have completed a degree from a recognized university.

    - The candidate need to be physically fit while appearing for the CDS Exam

    - As said before you need to have completed the degree or you need to be a final year student in order to apply for the exam.

    - You can apply for the exam if you satisfy the criteria's needed for the exam either Online or Offline

    - You can get more information about the exam at the official site of UPSC at http://www.upsc.gov.in

    ALL THE BEST...

    Re: Eligibility and way to apply for Indian Army?

    Yes my friend , You can join the Indian Army .
    You can join the Indian Army if you have selected any stream of subjects in your
    10+2 level of secondary school education . But only an unmarried male candidate
    can for join the Indian Army after completing his 10+2 level Secondary school Board
    Examination from a recognised institution of India .

    And so an unmarried female candidate of Indian cannot join the Indian Army after completing her 10+2 level Education .
    This us because an unmarried male 10+2 level commerce student can apply for the National; Defence Academy ( NDA )
    Examination while a unmarried female cannot apply for the National Defence Academy ( NDA ) Examination .

    The unmarried male candidate applying for the NDA Examination should be an Indian or
    an refugee candidates permanently settled in India .
    Through the NDA Examination you can enter the following Academies of our Indian National Defence Academy -:

    1. Air Force Academy of NDA .
    2. Army Academy of NDA .
    3. Naval Academy of NDA .

    This Examination is conducted and operated by the Indian UPSC Government .
    They conduct the NDA Examinations twice a year as NDA - I and NDA - II Examinations .

    To join the Naval or Air Force wing of NDA you should have taken Physics and mathematics subjects
    in your selected stream of subjects of the 10+2 level school board education .
    But to join the Army wing of NDA you can be any stream of subjects student in your 10+2 level .
    The NDA examination can even be applied by the 12th class male candidates .

    And , so you being a commerce stream student is eligible to apply for the Army wing of NDA .
    But at the time of applying the NDA Examination your age should be between 16 to 19 years .
    After passing the NDA Examination you will be sent for the SSB Rounds and after passing in
    the SSB rounds you will be called for the Medical procedure where if you pass the medical round
    you will be directly given admission in the Army wing of NDA .
    Here you will have to complete your three years of graduation course and after completing
    this course you will enter the Indian Army services as an cadre .

    The Physical Criteria to join the Army wing of NDA through the NDA Examination is -:
