    Re: How can I become Major in Indian Army?

    You cannot become major directly into the indian army as if you got selected in indian army by any of the examination conducted by UPSC or indian army then you will be entitled the post of leutinent and after 4 years of service you will be promoted as captain and after that you will become major in the same.
    so if you like to become a major then you need to wait for a very long time after the selection in indian army.
    You can apply for the NDA examination after class 12th in any stream and if you want to apply for air force and navy then you need to be 12th passed with physics and maths for the same.
    age should be 16.5 year to 19 years of age.
    selection procedure for the same is folowed by
    written examination.
    ssb
    medical examination.
    If you like to join indian army after graduation then you need to apply for the cds examination and for that you need to be a graduate in any discipline from a recognised university.
    age for the IMA should be 19 to 24 years and for OTA 19 to 25 years of age.
    selection procedure is same as NDA examination.
    for more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in
    thank you.

    Re: How can I become Major in Indian Army?

    hi,

    sorry to say you can't get the post of Major directly. you can only get after series of promotions and your capabilities. First of all if you join through UPSC exams you will be appointed for leautinent and after 4 years of service you will be promoted as Captain and after that you will become major in the same.
    So it is a long process and you have to keep patience.

    As you have said that you have completed you B.E it means that you are eligible to apply for UPSC CDS IMA exam.

    the exam is conducted by UPSC twice in a year. for IMA you need graduation from recognized college or university.
    your age must be within 19 years to 24 years and you must be Indian Citizen.

    you will also physically and mentally fit.

    if you satisfy the criteria then you can apply for the exam online on:

    http://upsconline.nic.in/


    Good Luck......

    Re: How can I become Major in Indian Army?

    Hi,
    uh...you cannot join the indian army at the post of MAJOR. There is a proper promotion program that you will have to pass with time. As such, there is no exam that recruits for the post of major. I think you shoul first aim to clear the exam, interview and other selection criteria. If you pass the exam, you will ba selected for the post of lieutenant.
    However, with consistent hard work, devotion and dedication, you will get promoted to the post of CAPTAIN. After that you can be promoted to MAJOR post.
    I think you should not keep a particular post in your mind. If selected, you should consider yourself blessed as you are getting a chance to serve your motherland. Promotions and posts will come automatically.
    Right now you can go for COMBINED DEFENCE SERVICES (CDS) exams. For this, the eligibility criteria is:


    1.You shoul be an unmarried male or female.

    2.Age limit is b/w 19 to 24 years.

    3.You should have completed graduation in any discipline from a recognised university.

    Go for it! Win! All the best!

    Re: How can I become Major in Indian Army?

    You are thinking for a long way.
    You can not become the major directly.
    The posts in the Army is given in increasing order below:-

    --Lieutenant
    --Captain
    --Major
    --Lt.Colonol
    --Colonol
    --Brigadier
    --Major General
    --Lt.General
    --General
    --Field Marshel

    so first you have to go through the Lieutenant & captain and after that you can become the Major.

    You can be posted on Lieutenant post after clearing the CDS & NDA exams.

    Re: How can I become Major in Indian Army?

    Hi

    If you want to become the Major in Indian army then it is a great thinking.
    But I am really sorry you can not become the Major in army directly for this you must have to cross the following posts in army:-

    1.Lieutenant
    2.Captain
    3.Major


    After crossing the Lieutenant and Captain you can become the Major.
    For becoming lieutenant you must have to apply for CDS exam and after clearing the CDS exam you will be posted on Lieutenant post.
    You must have degree from a recognized university and your age must be in between 19-23 years for CDS exam.
