    Re: Physical and medical fitness required for joining Indian Defence Services?

    you should fold a newspaper and make a ball out of it then you should keep it in the inner side of feet where there should be some curvature..... this would help for minor flat feet but for major flat feet contact a good doctor preferably a orthopedic surgeon.
    Best of luck
