    Is it a good Idea to join Indian Territorial Army(ITA)?? How is it different from the regualr Indian Army?? I heard from a friend that if one serves in TA for ten years, he is eligible for the permanent comission in the Indian Army. Is that true?

    According to me, Indian Territorial Army is good to join as you can also pursue any other career along with having reputation of a military personnel. Territorial Army offers work for 1-2 months a year, so it is a part time job, unlike the regular Indian Army which offers full time job. Besides personnel of TA can be asked to serve in regular army on full time basis on need.
    The fact you heard from your friend is about SSC of Indian Army.
