    Re: How much height is required for Army and Navy?

    Hi,

    Dear Friend

    The Height required for Indian Army depends on AGE and WEIGHT.

    The required height is relaxed for candidates belonging to the North East and hilly
    area like Gorkhas, Nepalese, Assamese and Garhwalis by 5.0 cms.


    The correlation table between age, height and average weight is given in the
    image attached here.

    ARMY / AIR FORCE :-






    NAVY :-





    How To use above table :-
    Step 1: First decide for which service you want to join i.e Army/Navy/Air Force
    Step 2:Then write your height ,weight and age on rough paper
    Step 3:Now select column which is having value nearer to your age.
    Step 4:Then select row of the same column which is having value nearer to your weight.
    Step 4:Now see the height in same row.
