    hi,
    If your age is 23 years old then it depend on your educational qualification.
    You can join indian army after 12th by applying nda exam.
    NDA exam stands for national defence academy which is conducted by upsc twice in a year.
    Age limit is 16.5 to 19 years.
    Therefore you are not eligible for nda exam.
    It is good news for you that you are eligible for cds exam after graduation from any stream.
    CDS exam stands for combined defence service which is conducted by upsc also twice in a year.
    Age limit is 21 to 30 years.
