    Re: Job oppurtunities for female graduates in Indian Army?

    You have plenty of options to join Indian defence services after B.Tech ECE inspite of being a women.Firstly,being a women you are ineligible for Indain Navy,Airforce academy and IMA through CDS. If you want to apply through CDS,you only have the option of joining OTA(Officer Training Academy) and your age limit should be 19-25years.
    You can joi Defence services through University Entry Scheme for Engineers.You will be eligible after 6th Semester for applying and there you will have to clear the SSB and then you will be given joining even before passing out and the rest of education will be taken care of by the Academy itself.
    You can also apply for AFCAT to get into Airforce as you are from ECE background which makes you eligible.
    You can check the career websites of all 3 wings of defence to know about other details such as date of commencement of exam or physical standards etc.

    Hi Mounika.

    A female candidate with a B.tech in Electronics and Communication can join the Indian Army via following entries.

    1. CDS Entry - A written exam that is held twice a year. After you have made it in the written you are called up for the Interview , known as the SSB.
    2. SSC Tech. Entry - 2 notifications in a year are issued for this entry as well, but unlike the CDS entry you don't have to appear for any Written exam you are issued call letters based on your % in the Engineering degree. At present it is fixed at 63% till 6th sem.

    While you are even eligible for Army, navy and Coast Guard. If you are interested I can share the details.

    Re: Job oppurtunities for female graduates in Indian Army?

    Hello

    After completing engineering there are only two entries for women in Indian Army.

    There is one entry named as

    1)CDSE-Combined Defense Service Examination.

    Through CDSE one can apply for OTA(Officer Training Academy).
    Qualification required for OTA is Graduation from any stream.
    Although CDSE allows to apply for both IMA and OTA,but girls are not eligible for applying in IMA.
    Both IMA and OTA are entries in Indian ARmy.
    But people who enters through IMA are offered Permanent Commission and people who enters through OTA are offered Short Service Commission.

    2)SSCW(Technical)
    Short Service Commission Women(Technical).
    It is also a entry for Engineers in Indian Army.A degree in engineering is required to apply for it.
    Here also girls are offered OTA.
    Short Service Commission.

    Remember girls are never offered Permanent Commission in Indian Army,so there only mode of entry is OTA in Indian Army.
