    Dear, you want to join IAF . After you completed your graduation you can apply CDS(combined defence service) exam. CDS exam give oppertunity to join defence at officer rank of graduate students. UPSC held this paper carefully twice in year. I shall not want give full advice about CDS because there have best option to join defence from direct entry scheme. From direct entry scheme you join IAF in technical branch ,as you like. If you want apply it , your age should be between 18-28 years. -you should complete engineering (in electronics or mechanical) with at least 60% aggregate. Advertisement will declare in employment news paper in janaury and july months. Thanks, Best of luck.
