    Re: Entrance exam, procedure and details to join Indian Army?

    Nice to see that your are interested to join Indian Army to serve our nation. Very few candidates in now a days are interested to join Indian Defence. There are lots of entries to Join Indian Army, you can apply as per your Eligibility. You can Join Indian Army by any one of the modes:

    ## National Defence Academy Examination
    ## Combined Defence Academy
    ## UES(University Entry Scheme)
    ## TGC(Technical Graduate course)

    NDA is for those who have completed his schooling i.e Intermediate examination. Only unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply for NDA.

    NDA Examination is conducted twice by UPSC: NDA(I) and NDA(II). But for this your age should between 16.5 to 19 years. Your age not more than 19 years at the time of commencement of Training.

    If you are graduate candidate then you can apply for Combined Defence academy examination and apply for Indian Military academy or Officer's Training Academy.

    ## For Indian Military Academy: Your age should between 19 to 24 years
    ## For Officer's Training Academy : Your age should between 19 to 25 years.

    CDS Examination Notification also published twice in a year in all leading newspapers or in the employment newspapers.

    You have to apply for this examination online only, because no offline application form is available in any post offices.

    You can also apply for TGC Entry and for this you have to complete your Engineering degree from a recognised university and your age should between
    20 to 27 years.

    Pre-final year candidates are also apply for University entry scheme and you have to complete your Engineering degree course. If you need more information then you can visit the official Indian Army website.

    Re: Entrance exam, procedure and details to join Indian Army?

    If you want to join Indian Army, then CDS Exam is the best option for you now.

    However, there is another option of NDA Exam but it is for 10+2 appearing or passed students.

    Since, you have already got Graduation Degree.

    So, you can appear for CDS (Combined Defence Services) Examination conducted by UPSC every year.

    CDS Exam is conducted twice in a year.

    You can get notifications about this exam on the official site of UPSC i.e.http://upsc.gov.in
