    Yes friend,
    You can definitely apply for Indian Army being a Commerce student.

    But since you are a girl you should complete your graduation and then apply for CDS exam.

    CDS is Combined Defense Service. The candidates applying for the CDS can join any of the 4 major defense wings:-

    ><IMA

    ><INA

    ><AFA

    ><OTA.

    Since you are interested in Indian Army only thus you can be from any stream even you can join OTA also.

    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR IMA:-

    ><Should have a graduation degree in any stream.

    ><Final year candidates are also eligible to apply.

    ><Age of the candidates should be 19-24years.

    ><Should be Indian citizen.

    ><Both unmarried male and female candidates can apply for it.

    ><Should be physically fit.

    SELECTION PATTERN :-

    =>Written Exam

    =>SSB Interview

    =>Medical Test.

    There will be no such problem with flat foot during the Medical Test.

    here I have attached the physical standard detail and some of the question papers for your help.

    Friend, please keep in the mind that candidates having FLAT FOOT are not eligible for any defence force as well as para-military forces. If during medical test, the flat foot is detected in the candidate, he will be disqualified at once.Generally, girls with bachelor degree in commerce stream or in any other stream can join the Indian Army through CDS Examination. For this, you have to shown your preference in the application form for OFFICER TRAINING ACADEMY.19 years to 25 years of age limit is required for Officer Training Academy. Candidate must possess the Indian citizenship. Candidate should have single marital status. Candidate should have fully physically fit body in all respect. Eye sight must be good. Eye, ears, nose, heart, liver, kidneys and other vital organs of body must have normal function.

    Re: Girls from commerce stream can join Indian Army? Qualification and eligibility? Does flat foot matters?

    Girls can apply for CDS or AFCAT entrance test conducted by UPSC every year to join Indian army after their graduation in any stream. But you can try to join NCC so that it can help you further for joining Indian army easily.
    Qualifications:
    Minimum is graduation in any stream.
    Eligibility:
    a. Should be a citizen of India.
    b. Should be unmarried.
    c. Age limit is 19-25 years.
    Also flat foot is an issue in medical tests conducted by Indian army. It is because it is said that persons with flat foot can't run fast or climb up mountains(i.e. trekking).
    But you don't worry. Flat foots can be corrected by some Asana's or walking bare foot on beach soil.
    Don't worry..... and all the best for your future.
